It only notes that Mormon support for Romney was about the same as for Bush in 2004.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.

If you look at the data, it dropped by 2% as a share of the vote. Therefore, I was correct.

I'm heartened, however, both by the re-election of Obama and that you yet again lead the race to end the year as the world's most tedious person in a battle for an unprecedented tenth crown.

It doesn't show the data for 2008 where the vote wasn't as close
I was surprised in the Pew Poll that Obama even got 20% of the Mormon vote
You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
