Anti-Mormon Romney Attack of the Day... CNN

(CNN)- "Mitt Romney’s campaign team knows that his Mormon faith scared off Republican voters the last time he ran for president...

Romney’s Mormonism, the thinking goes, is less exotic than it was four years ago because the candidate is more familiar...

The survey found that resistance to Mormon candidates was even higher among two groups: liberal Democrats and evangelicals, who overwhelmingly vote Republican. One in three white evangelicals said they were less likely to support a Mormon candidate...

Though Mormons consider themselves to be Christians, many evangelicals consider the Latter-day Saints to be a cult...

Evangelicals object to the Mormon belief that the Book of Mormon is the revealed word of God and to such Mormon practices as proxy baptisms for the dead. Evangelicals and Mormons also compete for converts."...

Romney has long been active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), having occupied Mormon leadership positions like bishop (the rough equivalent of a lay pastor) and stake president (someone who oversees groups of Mormon congregations).

CNN spun the Pew poll. It actually shows that almost half of liberals are bigoted against Mormons. Evangelicals are much less intolerant. And only 63% of these anti-Mormon groups say won't vote for Romney:

Politically, more Democrats than Republicans say they would be less likely to support a Mormon candidate. Liberal Democrats stand out, with 41% saying they would be less likely to support a Mormon candidate. Only about a quarter or fewer in other groups say this.

Mitt Romney loses support among voters who are less likely to vote for candidate who is Mormon. Among this group, only 31% say there is at least some chance they would vote for Mitt Romney, while 63% say there is no chance they would vote for him.
