Religious bigotry

Religious bigotry's supposed to be a bad thing, right?
Perhaps you have read those news analyses that purport to explain why Mitt Romney could never be nominated by the GOP: It's those bigoted evangelicals, supposedly, who would refuse to accept a Mormon presidential candidate, no matter how qualified he might be.

As the poll results are broken into demographic groups, some interesting facts emerge.
Who were these unwilling voters? While one-third of Republicans said they would reject a Mormon candidacy, 40% of Democrats would - and 50% of the most liberal Democrats.
