50% REPUBLICANS SURVEYED SAID THEY WOULD BE ANGRY/UPSET IF ROMNEY IS NOMINATED.

Angry More about Romney than his Mormon Faith

As Republican Mitt Romney struggles for political traction Super Tuesday, he may find a new Harris Interactive survey troubling.

The Internet survey of 2302 adults used a novel approach to try to determine what really bugs potential voters about the top candidates. Is it the candidate? Or is it race, gender or religion? Half the Republicans responding to the survey said the thought of Mitt Romney in the White House made them angry or upset. When asked to imagine an un-named Mormon as President, the anger and upset dropped to a third of the GOP respondents.

The survey was conducted January 15-22, long after Romney seemed to push the religion issue out of the campaign, at least as a regular focus of news stories. The coverage since Romney’s December speech about faith has largely been about issues and strategy.

Keep in mind that there are likely NO democrats that would support a Mitt Romney Presidency. But all of his republican mormons will vote for him likely. There are probably some that are fence sitters. And many who won’t vote. The numbers suddenly look like about less than 20% republican support – at best, if you don’t count Mormons, who would vote for him, without even knowing who he is. Recall that nearly 100% of Nevada republican mormons, voted for Romney.
