When Romney announced his desire to run for President back in 2008, one of his major flaws among the American voter was his Mormon beliefs. But that was then and this is now, and according to a new Quinnipiac poll, Americans will vote for anyone of any belief, as long as that person is not a Muslim. The poll released on June 8th, found that of the different Religions, Americans are more comfortable with a Catholic president at 60%, than they are with a Muslim at 21%. Mormons are just below Christians, getting a 43% vote. The poll also finds, that among Republican voters, Romney is in the lead with 25 percent, followed by Sarah Palin at 15 percent. The other so-called contenders?:
- Howard Cain is at 9%
- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 8%
- Texas U.S. Rep. Ron Paul at 8%
- Minnesota U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann at 6%
- Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty at 5%
- Former Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum at 4%
- Jon Huntsman at 1%.
Another 20 percent are undecided.
