Voters Don't Care About Romney's Religion

Remember all the media chatter during the primaries about how the “Mormon factor” could undermine Mitt Romney’s candidacy?

American voters, it turns out, are mostly unconcerned about Romney’s religious affiliation or have no idea what it is.

Only 60% of voters are aware that Romney is a Mormon, 9% percent think he is something else and 32% can’t identify his faith, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center released July 26.
