    This is just one of many problems for Mitt

    Romney's got a lot bigger problems than being Mormon. I can think of many, many reasons why I would never vote for him. #1 is I'm from Massachusetts. We had Romney for four years as Governor and there's no way he can handle the job of President. He knows that we know....he didn't even bother to swing by one of many of his "home" states on his bus tour! And he was right next door in NH. He knew better than to show his face in MA.

    Being a Mormon is the least of Romney's problem, he is a liar and crook.

    and take action for it will keep us FREE. Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea or Iran. Our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington, DC . The government will not help, so we need to do it ourselves.
    Obama Giving the finger

    We know about Obama's actions and plans for the USA , so that they may know how to vote in November, 2012 and the ensuing years?

    It's your decision. I believe it does matter. How about you?

    #2 His awful policies and war on the poor and declining middle class???
    I think Obama has that very well covered don't you?

    OBAMA MYTH: Destroying companies

    REALITY: Governor Romney’s private sector record is one of success and turnaround, despite many investments in companies that were failing at the time.

    Eighty percent of the companies Bain Capital has invested in from its founding to today have grown revenues. When companies grow, they are able to hire more workers and our economy grows.

    Bain Capital pursued an investment strategy that often included targeting companies in decline and trying to turn them around. In most cases, it held the companies for many years and invested a significant amount of human and financial capital into improving operations to help revive these struggling companies.

    When President Obama attacks Governor Romney’s record in the private sector, he’s also attacking our country’s greatest engine for job creation: the free enterprise system.

    OBAMA MYTH: Destroying companies

    REALITY: Governor Romney’s private sector record is one of success and turnaround, despite many investments in companies that were failing at the time.

    Eighty percent of the companies Bain Capital has invested in from its founding to today have grown revenues. When companies grow, they are able to hire more workers and our economy grows.

    Bain Capital pursued an investment strategy that often included targeting companies in decline and trying to turn them around. In most cases, it held the companies for many years and invested a significant amount of human and financial capital into improving operations to help revive these struggling companies.

    When President Obama attacks Governor Romney’s record in the private sector, he’s also attacking our country’s greatest engine for job creation: the free enterprise system.

    OBAMA MYTH: Rich businessmen profited most from the firm’s investments.

    REALITY: The major investment beneficiaries of Mitt Romney’s work in private equity – and private equity in general – are the investors in the fund.

    The investors include pension funds, charities, and universities. In fact, over half the money invested in private equity is from pension funds and charitable foundations alone. The success of private equity investments helps provide secure retirements for seniors, allows charities to serve their communities, and provides universities with the resources they need to educate our youth.

    In addition, state and local governments depend on higher returns from private equity investments to fund employee retirements without cutting into operating budgets. When investments don’t perform, state and local governments must offset gaps in investment returns by using tax dollars otherwise spent on local programs. In California, for example, one study has shown that a 0.25% decrease in investment returns could cost local municipalities and school districts $300 million per year. That’s $300 million less being spent on vital local programs.

    When private equity succeeds, it is not just companies that thrive -- it is retirees, charities, local communities, and universities that benefit the most.

    OBAMA MYTH: Bankrupting a successful steel mill in Kansas City, MO.

    REALITY: The GS Technologies plant that Barack Obama has used to attack Mitt Romney was scheduled to be closed if Romney and his colleagues hadn’t bought the plant and tried to help turn it around.

    In 1993, GS Technologies, a company Bain Capital had invested in, purchased a struggling Kansas City steel plant from Armco. Prior to this investment, Armco announced plans to close the Kansas City plant if a buyer could not be found.

    This investment – and $170 million in upgrades – kept the Kansas City plant competitive in a tough international market and saved the steel workers’ jobs for eight years.

    Two years after Mitt Romney left Bain Capital, the GS Technologies plant was closed because of foreign steel dumping into the U.S. market. Thirty-one other steel companies declared bankruptcy during the same period.

    During his three and a half years in office, President Obama has consistently failed to take the steps necessary to protect American manufacturing from unfairly-subsidized Chinese imports. On day one, President Romney will designate China a currency manipulator and take the steps necessary to make American manufacturing competitive again.

    OBAMA MYTH: Shutting down a successful paper plant in Marion, IN.

    REALITY: The paper plant in Marion, IN was losing money when Ampad bought it to try to turn it around.

    In 1992, Bain Capital invested in American Paper & Pad, or Ampad. Two years later – while Governor Romney was on a leave of absence to run for U.S. Senate against the late Ted Kennedy – Ampad purchased the assets of an unprofitable plant in Marion, Indiana from Smith Corona.

    This was not a healthy plant: In the year preceding Ampad’s purchase, the Marion plant lost more than $1.6 million dollars.

    Though the Marion plant would later close, Ampad added nearly 2,500 jobs at other plants between Bain Capital’s initial investment and the sale of its majority interest. During this same period, revenues grew dramatically from $8.8 million to more than $580 million.

    OBAMA MYTH: A “Corporate Raider”

    FACT: Even President Obama’s supporters acknowledge this isn’t true. Steve Rattner, President Obama’s former car czar, said that Governor Romney was the “furthest thing” from a corporate raider. Governor Deval Patrick rejected the characterization of Bain Capital as a raider and said that Bain was a “perfectly fine company” with “a role in the private economy.” The truth is that Governor Romney wasn’t tearing down companies; he was building up strong companies like Staples, Sports Authority, Steel Dynamics, and Bright Horizons. This accusation is yet another failed attempt to smear Governor Romney’s “sterling” private sector record, and even President Obama’s supporters reject it.

    OBAMA MYTH: Shipping Jobs Overseas

    FACT: Under Governor Romney’s leadership, Bain Capital invested in over 100 companies. Of those, President Obama’s campaign has accused three of shipping jobs overseas. In two of these cases, the accusations are related to events that occurred in 2000 and 2001, well after Governor Romney left Bain Capital in February 1999 to lead the Winter Olympics. In the third case, the share of domestic production actually increased, not decreased, during the time the Obama campaign points to. This attack is merely an attempt to distract voters from President Obama’s failed economic record and his refusal to stand up to China’s unfair trade practices.

    OBAMA MYTH: Closing Stores And Laying Off Employees

    FACT: Under Bain Capital’s ownership, Stage Stores doubled the number of employees and doubled the number of stores. During this time, Stage Stores added locations in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Bain Capital sold its controlling interest in the company in 1997. Years later, Stage Stores filed for bankruptcy, but today it is a healthy business with 14,000 employees and hundreds of new stores nationwide.

I was raised in the Church of Christ, I was a studious adherent of the faith when I was in the Church. Mormonism is apostasy under the credo my faith.

    Abraham 1:21-26 "Now this king of Egypt was a descendant from the loins of Ham, and was a partaker of the blood of the Canaanites by birth. From this descent sprang all the Egyptians, and thus the blood of the Canaanites was preserved in the land. The land of Egypt being first discovered by a woman, who was the daughter of Ham, and the daughter of Egyptus, which in the Chaldean signifies Egypt, which signifies that which is forbidden; When this woman discovered the land it was under water, who afterward settled her sons in it; and thus, from Ham, sprang that race which preserved the curse in the land. Now the first government of Egypt was established by Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus, the daughter of Ham, and it was after the manner of the government of Ham, which was patriarchal. Pharaoh, being a righteous man, established his kingdom and judged his people wisely and justly all his days, seeking earnestly to imitate that established by the fathers in the first generations, in the days of the first patriarchal reign, even in the reign of Adam, and also of Noah, his father, who blessed him with the blessing of the earth, and with the blessings of wisdom, but cursed him as pertaining to the Priesthood.

    What the Book of Mormon says about Polygamy

    Jacob 1:15
    And now it came to pass that the people of Nephi, under the reign of the second king, began to grow hard in their hearts, and indulge themselves somewhat in wicked practices, such as like unto David of old desiring many wives and concubines, and also Solomon, his son.

    Jacob 2:24
    Behold, David and Solomon truly had many wives and concubines, which thing was abominable before me, saith the Lord.

    Jacob 2:27
    Wherefore, my brethren, hear me, and hearken to the word of the Lord: For there shall not any man among you have save it be one wife; and concubines he shall have none.

    What the Book of Mormon Says About American Indians (Lamanites)

    Native Americans descended from Israelites who traveled by boat to North America in 600 BCE. God darkened their skin and made them sinful, polluted, blood-thirsty savages to punish Laman (Lehi's rebellious son). Native Americans are the descendants of Laman and are called "Lamanites" in the Book of Mormon.
    "And he [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them [the Lamanites] ... wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them." 2 Nephi 5:21

    "The Lamanites ... were led by their evil nature that they became wild, and ferocious, and a bloodthirsty people, full of idolatry and filthiness; feeding upon beasts of prey; dwelling in tents, and wandering about in the wilderness with a short skin girdle about their loins and their heads shaven.... And many of them did eat nothing save it was raw meat; and they were continually seeking to destroy us." Enos 1:20

    "The Lamanites ... were a wild, and ferocious, and a blood-thirsty people." Mosiah 10:11-12

    What the Book of Mormon Says About American Indians (Lamanites)

    Mosiah 25:11 "The Lamanites ... were ... sinful and polluted."
    But at least there was hope for them. If they repented and became good people again, God would lighten their skin, so they'd become white, faiir, and delightsome once more. (You can tell how good a person is by the color of their skin. White is good; black is bad.)

    "It came to pass that those Lamanites who had united with the Nephites were numbered among the Nephites; And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites; And their young men and their daughters became exceedingly fair." 3 Nephi 2:14-15

    "And then shall they rejoice; for they shall know that it is a blessing unto them from the hand of God; and their scales of darkness shall begin to fall from their eyes; and many generations shall not pass away among them, save they shall be a pure and delightsome people." 2 Nephi 30:6

    What the Book of Mormon Says About Terrorism

    1 Nephi 4:12-13
    And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me again: Slay him, for the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands; Behold the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous purposes.It is better that one man should perish than that a nation should dwindleand perish in unbelief.

    3 Nephi 20:16-20
    Then shall ye, who are a remnant of the house of Jacob, go forth among them ... as a young lion among the flocks of sheep, who, if he goeth through both treadeth down and teareth in pieces, Thy hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off. ... And thou shalt beat in pieces many people; ... And it shall come to pass, saith the Father, that the sword of my justice shall hang over them at that day; and except they repent it shall fall upon them, saith the Father, yea, even upon all the nations of the Gentiles.

    Isn't that racist? I'm still voting for him. Back in the day, a Catholic President was unheard of and look what happened in 1960. Our first Catholic President, and evidently, he is well loved and everyone seems to think he was a great president.

    there are plenty of reasons I wouldn't vote for Mitt. his religion is not among them. so long as he kept it out of his politics, I would have no problem with any politician's religion. Mitt certainly seems to keep it out of his life generally - so why wouldn't he continue?

    that said, I live in Florida. do you have any idea how many folks from Massachusetts live here either full time or as snow birds? and THEY, to a person, tell me they would never vote for Romney. they have lived under his policies and they can't stand him. that tells me everything I need to know.

    aamof, the only thing they like about him is Romneycare. go figure.

    For crying out loud this is utter stupidity. According to the article you posted, it's only 18% of those polled they would not vote for him, JUST BECAUSE HE'S MORMON . He hasn't come in the open with it, probably because he is not running for becoming the next "pope" ( persay ), but the Presidency of the United States of America, where his ideals for this job should come from what kind of person he is to uphold the job title of being president. A person's religious beliefs should not have anything to do with becoming the president, not unless you are a non resident, illegal immigrant, whatever you want to call it. But I guess it's all part of the program of vetting the candidates in the right manner, in which they never did that with Obama.

    It is BECAUSE he did not come in the open with it , he pretends to be a Christian , while Mormonism has a greater distance from Christianity than any other cult ....
