I don't know. Republicans have, as key to their national base, a lot of evangelical Christians; many of them seem antagonistic to Mormons. If
Romney is to have a chance, he'sd going to have to overcome it, the same way Kennedy did with his Catholicism the West Virginia primary in 1960.
Interestingly enough, you may remember that one of the presidential candidates during those years was George Romney, then-governor of Michigan, and
Mitt's father; and his first cousin once removed was the late Marion G Romney, a General Authority.
I don't have much of a problem with Romney, except that he's not as strong a Second Amendment advocate as I'd like to see.
And as far as his religion is concerned, no big deal. My city (Mesa, AZ) was founded by Mormons, they hava a disproportionately very large political
base here, and we have a great city with great family values.
We could do a lot worse than Romney.
