Not all that surprising when you consider the left’s hostility towards faith in general, with the exception being Islam.
The polling firm found that 27 percent of Democrats would vote against a Mormon candidate for president because of religion, compared with about 20 percent of both Republicans and independents who said they would oppose such a candidate.
The GOP primary field currently claims two Mormons — Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman.
Anti-Mormon sentiment is slightly higher than during the 2008 presidential election, according to Gallup. Twenty-two percent of all voters said they will oppose a Mormon candidate in 2012 — a 5 percent increase from a similar survey taken in 2007.
