Religious Intolerance Could Sour Romney's Momentum
(KUTV) Even Mitt Romney's nomination is all but official.
If Mitt Romney wins in next week’s primary stop in Texas, and becomes the G.O.P. nominee, that would make him the first ever Mormon to be chosen for the possibility to be elected president.
However, a new study could sour the momentum.
In 2008 prejudices eroded as our nation elected its African American president.
One prejudice that hasn't changed is religious intolerance, specifically towards Mormons.
The Washington Post conducted a recent study to point out that Americans in general are reluctant to admit they harbor biases, because no-one wants to say we dislike a certain group for race or religion.
They say it is notable that so many will still admit reluctance to vote for a Mormon.
