Bologna. I’ve been told here a thousand times that evangelicals would rather vote for a left-wing Muslim than a right-of-center Mormon. LOL
As it turns out, McLaughlin is actually doing the internal polling for Mitt and Josh Mandel in Ohio, and I know he knows his stuff.
This time around the Obamaites won't be able to count on conservative apathy.
They gotta worry about their own staying away from the polls.
And, significantly the Mormon card was played by the LSM and the Obama campaign and it did not make a dent.
Mainly, because Obama is SO bad.
Obama is a uniter:
Evangelicals and democrat Catholics will vote for a Mormon this time. Romney will even take more of the Jewish vote in 2012.
Well if the enthusiasm is so great and evangelicals are so pumped up about voting out Obama, why aren’t we seeing it ? Why is Rasmussen still the only poll that shows Romney winning the election and virtually every other state and national poll showing otherwise ? And why are so many Obama supporters so convinced Obama will win (you can see this on Democratic Underground, Daily Kos and other places) ? I just feel that if the Republican and conservative enthusiasm was as great as people say it is, it would be so blatantly clear Obama is winning that noone could come up with nay kind of poll at all showing Obama is winning and every hardline leftist site would already be conceding defeat.
I mean, during this time of the elections in 1980 and 1984, wasn’t it already so obvious that Reagan was gonna win by this time that his opponents’ supporters were pretty much already admitting defeat ? At the very least, this is not looking like 1980 or 1984, and based on reports I have heard about Conservative enthusiasm I thought it would already be looking like a Reagan election by now. Are the genuine conservatives and evangelicals just gearing up for a final day surprise to catch everyone off guard or something ? Where is the Conservative enthusiasm and where is the proof it is so much higher than hardline liberal enthusiasm ? It should have already been obvious to virtually every American by now.
Gordon B. Hinckley, prior President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1995-2008), said:
We are Christians in a very real sense and that is coming to be more and more widely recognized. Once upon a time people everywhere said we are not Christians. They have come to recognize that we are, and that we have a very vital and dynamic religion based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. We, of course, accept Jesus Christ as our Leader, our King, our Savior...the dominant figure in the history of the world, the only perfect Man who ever walked the earth, the living Son of the living God. He is our Savior and our Redeemer through whose atoning sacrifice has come the opportunity of eternal life. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pray and worship in the name of Jesus Christ. He is the center of our faith and the head of our Church. The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ and witnesses of His divinity, His life, and His Atonement.
Don’t underestimate the Amish turnout.
As to evangelicals refusing to vote for Romney, a Mormon, that "they'd vote for the Muslim first" (which is pure crapola) wouldn't hold water, especially after a full page ad was run on behalf of Billy Graham telling believers to vote their faith.
Dr. Richard Land and other faith leaders are either endorsing or encouraging the "silent majority" to carefully consider the candidates that openly stand against all that we are taught in the scriptures, i.e. pro-life, pro-biblical marriage, and against accepting homosexuality as the norm for society.
I pray that Catholic leaders are telling their flock the same, as nothing that Obama stands for is embraced by the Holy Scriptures - and he's proud of it! He is already punishing Catholic institutions (along with Protestant institutions but only Catholic institutions seem to have garnered news stories) by forcing all the faithful to cover not only birth control but RU486 (formerly known as the abortion pill), as well as other abortifacients, which goes against the First Amendment as well as our consciences.
