Not since John F. Kennedy has a presidential candidate been faced with a what some may call a Presidential ‘religious test.’ Nevertheless, as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney may be the next in line. According to a 1999 Gallup Poll, 17% of respondents said they wouldn’t vote for a Mormon.
Romney, is dismissive of the religious hurdle, but others suggest there may be more barriers there than he realizes. With Hillary Clinton as the likely foe, is it possible that the United States could have a Mormon president in 2008?
