Mormon Factor for Romney

Today’s headlines in our local newspaper:

‘Mormon factor’ wears off for Romney

Here is the input from Greer and Greenville, South Carolina:

“Although Romney’s faith is still a matter of some discussion, it is less of a political problem for him than it was in 2008,” said Jim Guth, a political scientist at Furman University in Greenville, in South Carolina’s conservative upstate. “Most Republicans have a generally positive view of Romney, even evangelical Christians.”

Four years ago, the Romney campaign directly took on suspicion about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Conservative Christians, including many protestants and Roman Catholics, do not consider Mormons to be Christian, although Mormons strongly do.
