FAUX FRONTRUNNING:

Poll shows religion can sway votes for president (AP, September 10, 2007)

One in 4 people in the United States said in a recent poll that they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who is Mormon, an ominous sign for Republican contender Mitt Romney.

Yet the survey found two groups, atheists and Muslims, were even less likely to win votes.

Sixty-one percent of those questioned said they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who did not believe in God. Forty-five percent said the same regarding a Muslim contender.


Which is why neither Mitt nor the Mayor can win the nomination.

Less likely doesn't mean they won't vote for the person, especially if they are going against Hillary where polls show 50% or more won't vote for her no way no how.

And I'll bet 25% is less than the % of GOPers who won't vote for McCain no way no how.

If it came to Hillary or Mitt, it's the devil you know vs. the devil you don't know. And Mitt Romney is the Latter.

Like Mormonism, the blog isn't what it seems.

(Funny photos too.)

The Mayor is neither an athiest nor a Mormon. He is, I submit, a neo-Falangist, we may differ as to whether there is anything wrong with that.
