Mitt(ens) Romney is not gonna get the Republican nomination in 2012. Evangelicals and Mormons are like Shiite and Sunni -- they both claim to worship the same God but they hate each other. And Evangelicals make up 60% of Republican primary voters. That's why Palin could put on her hip waders and give the finger to Alaska -- she's the darling of the evangelical wing of the Republican Party -- and the evangelical wing of the Republican Party IS the Party.
Gallup conducted a poll back in 2007 that revealed that:
5% of Americans said they would never vote for a black candidate;
11% said they would never vote for a woman candidate; and
24% said they would never vote for a Mormon candidate.
