All Hail the Mormon?

As the elections for 2008 come closer, a republican is making news. Mitt Romney, is surprisingly doing well in the polls and debates. I am a democrat but i am interested in how he is doing because of his religious annotations. He is a proud morman. Now to me, mormanism is a strange (mainly cause it is foreign to me) religion,and i think that is what will defer his chances to become president.

Does he have enough charisma to make religion not an issue?


I dont think he can. JFK was catholic, and that was an issue, but Catholicism is not an extreme sector of Christianity as most people think Mormanism is. Even if Mitt can try to convince his religion is not a factor about him becoming president, i still think the ignorant people in the country would not see that, and would be very much against, because of his religion.
I dont think the "All Hail The Chief" will be playing for a Morman in 2008.

I think that a lot of people will take the time to find out what Mormons believe by going to their websites and Then they could leave the religious factor out and just look at the issues.
