Not all that surprising when you consider the left’s hostility towards faith in general, with the exception being Islam.

(Politico) — Democrats are more likely to oppose a Mormon candidate in 2012 than Republicans, according to a new Gallup poll.

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.
