Bias against Mormon presidential candidate unchanged since 1967, poll finds

By Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor

(CNN) - Bias against a Mormon presidential candidate hasn’t budged in 45 years, with 18% of Americans saying they would not vote for a well-qualified candidate who happened to be Mormon, according to a Gallup Poll released Thursday.

The survey points up potential challenges for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is vying to be the first Mormon in the White House.

Gallup first asked Americans about support for a Mormon presidential candidate in 1967 when Romney’s father, George Romney, was running for president. That year, 17% of Americans said they would not vote for a well-qualified Mormon for president.

George Romney dropped out of the race after making a gaffe about the Vietnam War, and Richard Nixon won the GOP nomination in 1968.

The shaping of a candidate: A look at Mitt Romney's faith journey

“The stability of resistance to a Mormon presidential candidate over the past 45 years is an anomaly,” Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport wrote in a survey report, noting that “resistance to a candidate who is black, a woman, or Jewish has declined substantially over the same period of time.”

The survey also found that four in 10 Americans do not know that Romney is Mormon. Gallup found that those who know Romney is a Mormon are also the most likely to back the idea of a Mormon for president.

But the national learning curve on Romney's religion "suggests the possibility that as Romney's faith becomes better known this summer and fall, it could become more of a negative factor," Newport wrote in his report.

"Those who resist the idea of a Mormon president will in theory become more likely to realize that Romney is a Mormon as the campaign unfolds," Newport wrote.

Bias against a Mormon candidate is significantly higher among Democrats and independents than among Republicans, Gallup found.

Twenty-four percent of Democrats and 18% of independents said they would not vote for a well-qualified Mormon who was nominated by their party, while 10% of Republicans expressed such opposition.

Resistance to a Mormon candidate was much higher among Americans with lower levels of education, with 23% of those without a high school diploma saying they would not support a well-qualified Mormon. Six percent of those with postgraduate education shared that view.

In his report, Newport said that it’s “unclear how the current level of resistance to the idea of voting for a Mormon presidential candidate will affect the election.”

“History shows that these types of attitudes in and of themselves are not an impediment to victory,” Newport wrote, citing a 1960 poll that found 21% of Americans would not vote for a well-qualified Catholic candidate for the presidency.

Later that same year, John F. Kennedy won the White House.

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In an interview earlier this year, Southern Baptist leader Richard Land predicted that Romney’s Mormonism would become a bigger political challenge for the candidate - not because of anti-Mormon bias among evangelicals but because of that bias among independents.

Most evangelicals already “know what Mormonism believes and most of them are prepared to vote for Mitt Romney in a general election against Barack Obama in spite of his Mormonism,” said Land, public policy chief for the country’s largest evangelical denomination.

“The 40% of electorate that’s independent, most of them have no idea what Mormons believe,” Land said. “But they will all know what Mormons believe by the general election.”

    "Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so." Brigham Young

    After settling in Utah in 1848, Brigham Young announced a priesthood ban which prohibited all men of black African descent from holding the priesthood.

  6. not soooooo

    This was so well put David I wanted to post it again.
    Jack, this might be a first for a Kerryman to offer good advice to a Dub. Thanks for your genuine and thoughtful comment. All I can say to you is that I'm happy. I can't think of anything less "cultish" then my life. I am as free as any man you know. It's funny that it was in Tralee that I first started to really think about these things seriously. I met an older man and we talked about the purpose to life. He told me that he would die soon, go into the ground and worms would then take over. Nothing more, nothing less. I asked him if he was happy with that and ha said "no, who is happy with just ending." I agreed and I started to ask questions. There is no cult that I know that gives you access in and out of the door of the church as you will. There is guidance as to how to live...but it's my choice if I live it. I was baptized as a baby inthe catholic church because I had to be or I would have the sin of Adam on me forever. I was baptized as a Mormon years later because I wanted to be. I'm 35 years old, happy, comfortable, in love with my wife, cherish my kids and do what I can to help those around me. If that is a cult then I'm screwed because I have a lot of people looking for what I have. Jack, you sound happy, content and wise. Thanks for your concern, honestly. But don't feel bad for any of us Mormons. We know what we are doing and choose to live life as you would. With no regrets and eyes looking forward.

      " I asked him if he was happy with that and ha said "no, who is happy with just ending."

      To base your happiness on an alternate reality where you get to live on forever & ever aside from any evidence of such existence seems irrational at best and sheer lunacy at worst.

    Joseph Smith and his family were persecuted for saying that he saw God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ and testified of the Gold plates that he Book of Mormon is based on. He ultimately was killed for saying the things he saw and never once did he deny any of it. Do you think if he was lying and people hunting down their family and killing other members of church that he would confess his lie before other get hurt or killed? He never did and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

    June 22, 2012 at 1:44 am |
    • Brigham Young

      Hmmm...and his wife left the "church" to hang with the Reformed LDS church because it wsa the "true" church...so even if you believe any of this BS, the mainstream LDS church is not the original and is apostate.

      June 22, 2012 at 1:55 am |
    • Just Claims, No Truth

      Yes he was a lying sack of sh!t. He was completely invested in his lie, the fact that he died without admitting it means nothing. The best liars make sure their lies cannot be proven....and as the old saying goes, "it's not a lie if you believe it."

      June 22, 2012 at 1:56 am |
    • Joseph Smith jr.

      Joseph Smith was killed because of a power struggle he started by ex-communicating people he disagreed with, who retaliated by revealing his failings in a newspaper. Smith ordered his militia to destroy the press, which triggered significant regional anger, which caused Smith to call out his militia and declare martial law. However, the state militia was more powerful, and after fleeing then surrendering, an angry mob lynched him.

      Not the pretty sanitized lie you told, but the seedy reality of a seedy man. He's not a martyr; he's a moron who made it happen through the ill-considered use of a personal militia to destroy freedom of the press and the general liberty of the region.

    Let me share a few reasons why Mitt Romney should be President of the United States.
    Most people who read CNN are not biased and are more interested in a persons ability to lead than a persons religion, but regardless, if that is how you define a person, so be it....
    1. He is a successful business owner.
    2. Unless you lived in Utah over 10 years ago, most won't remember the debacle we had with the 2002 winter olympics. He turned it around from a money loosing venture to still generating revenue today-10 years later. He turned around the perception of bribery and low morale to the place to see and be seen. It still is the standard for Olympics today.
    3. In the most Democratice state (Mass), he was voted as a Republican Gov and got things done. He is the true meaning of bi-partisianship. He is not afraid to cross the aisle, shakehands, agree to dissagree and work things out with compromise.
    He is pro gun, pro family, pro state rights, pro personal responsibility, pro small and large business and pro getting things done. I can't think of a better friend for Unions, business, military, banks, unemployed, and people who work hard trying to raise good children in tough times, than they would have a friend in Mitt Romney.

    June 22, 2012 at 1:41 am |
    • Jeb

      If Mittens gets to run the country the way he ran Bain Capital, he'll swoop in while we're struggling, sell off all our assets, ship all our jobs overseas, and hide his profits in offshore accounts to avoid paying taxes.

      Also he ranked 47th in job creation as the 1 term governor of Massachusetts.

      Get over your persecution complex – you are not special enough for anyone to waste time censoring. CNN uses a simple "word fragment filter" that you are too stupid to understand and get around. The magic list has been posted numerous times, possibly in this thread, but certainly in 1 or 2 of the most recent ones. Go do some homework. Looking forward to reading your good words...

      June 22, 2012 at 1:42 am |

      No. There is no censor here beyond a lame program that won't let naughty words post. You probably said "consti.tuion without realizing that you said the horribly offensive work "ti-t", or circu mstance which has cu-m in it. Just find the naughty word and do what I do.

      Nobody is censoring you on content. It takes very little time he to realize that some very offensive stuff from all points of view gets on here and stays.

      But we do appreciate the conspiracy theory. CNN is out to get you. Your opinions and this blog are just so important that they have hidden cameras everywhere watching you. Really

      Sorry that is not it. You wouldn't know because you never defend anything that has to do with being a Republican. Yes they do censor. Why is it that CNN has at least every other day written something like this piece of garbage. Where is the Reverend Wright piece or Acorn. All this Mormon stuff was said 4 years ago.

  14. Joseph Smith jr.

    Let's see, as a young man, I practiced religious folk magic, and all my family believed that they communicated directly with God through dreams and visions. I did a lot of treasure-digging, in which I used rocks (seer stones) put in my white stovetop hat to guide me to treasure that I never found.

    I did find some golden Egyptian plates in Upstate New York, even though nobody actually saw these plates, on which was the badly-written story (in the non-existent language of "reformed Egyptian") of archeological impossibilities and other obviously phony tales that sure would seem to be the work of a treasure-digging con-man if you did not know better.

    I had power struggles with other early Mormons, declaring myself the only true prophet, and did a couple bank pyramid scams, had an affair with the servant girl, pissed off the locals and encouraged violence, made myself a general while avoiding trial for treason in another state, invented polygamy and baptism for the dead, was implicated in the assassination attempt on a governor, made myself a candidate for president, tried to create a "theodemocracy" beyong government control, in which I was "prophet, priest and king", mobilized a Mormon militia nad declared martial law, but, outnumbered, surrendered and got lynched for being a dumbfuck.

    Yeah. That's how God arranged my life, the life of a true prophet.

    And millions actually believe what I said was true.

But tonight as I was waiting for an appointment, I stopped for the first time to read these comments. Wow, what entertainment!!! I'm trying to decide if you people are the type that comment on anything and everything because you don't have lives to live, or if it's simply to satisfy your need for a podium to stand at to criticize or defend. Whichever it is, you are certainly entertaining. Gave me a laugh. Now I have to get back to my life . . . .

    I'm not biased against Romney because he's a Mormon; I am biased against him because he is looking to enact reactionary policies towards LGBT people. And he wants to fix our economy by trying the exact same things Bush Jr. did.

    Not that many mainstream religions call for the overthrow of the U S government. (Read Joseph Smith for yourself.) Not that many mainstream religions tried to break with the Union. Not that many mainstream religions staged insurrections that had to be put down by the U S Army. None of this might matter if the Bishop were just an ordinary Mormon. He's not. He's descended from a Prophet and is Mormon royalty. He's benefited from this all his life as did his father. The Invisible Church is what ought to concern us–they represent the financial interests not only of the church itself but of the close family of extremely wealthy Mormons who watch our for one another, lend each other money and seek the political and economic domination of everything and everyone around them. Proof? Utah. So, you go right ahead and vote for the Bishop; and while he's riding his dancing horse, you can fry up some for you and the kids.
