I find great interest in the "Romney spawned interest in mormonism"

From my first link in this thread
"According to a Gallup poll, one in five Americans would not vote for a Mormon for president, and it is not just Democrats, but Christians who are a key component of the Republican base."
And . . .
"Evangelical Christians in the US have had a long competition with Mormons for converts. Philip Roberts, who served as the head of the Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for over a decade, says many evangelicals now fear that the election of a Mormon president would give the Mormon faith additional legitimacy around the globe, aiding the missionary efforts of an 'un-Christian' faith."
Evangelicals in this election are between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, they loudly decry the antics of Obama, on the other hand, they have been very outspoken against mormonism.
Considering public perspective,
"One in five voters said they would not vote for Kennedy because they were afraid he would take orders from the Pope - the same percentage who now say they would not vote for a Mormon for president."
As much as I am convinced the current administration is spending our nation into disaster (their financial budget proudly heralded by Obama), I am convinced they need to be ousted. But the thought of putting in Romney, of all people, is incredibly difficult for me to go along with.
I believe these last two elections prove the Republicans are stupid. If they can't manage to get better candidates for president other than McCain/Palin and Romney/?, then they deserve to lose.
With all the reluctance I'm capable of mustering, I will vote for a Republican candidate in the fall not because I like Romney but because I absolutely deplore the current, so called leader.
