Politics Study Explores Religion's Impact on Romney, Perry, Cain Campaigns
Despite heavy media coverage of Mitt Romney's religion, only 42 percent of Americans correctly identify the candidate as a Mormon. This level of knowledge remains the same from July, even after Texas pastor Robert Jeffress' comments about Mormonism being a cult spread like wildfire and sparked a heated debate.
Indeed, a new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute finds that white evangelical Protestants are the only subgroup that demonstrates increased knowledge of Romney's religion (53 percent today compared to 44 percent in July). The Religion & Politics Tracking Survey also finds that registered voters are more likely than Americans overall to correctly identify Romney's religion (49 percent, compared to 42 percent respectively)....
I think Americans, the great majority of them, identify these politicians correctly, they are in the same group as insurance salesmens, used car salesmen, real estate agents, etc. The group that slithers upon the ground in other words.
