While many expected Mitt Romney’s nomination on the Republican ticket in the 2012 presidential election to lead to a wider acceptance of Mormons in American politics, it seems to have done the opposite, writes David Smith. He argues that the perception that Mormons have an authoritarian religious agenda and that they are not ‘true Christians’ has led to a large decline in support for Mormon candidates, since 2007, especially among liberals.
