Poll: Few think Romney's faith resembles their own
Poll: Qualms about Mormonism widespread, but may not impact Romney's run for the presidency
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) Most of America doesn't relate to Mitt Romney's religion, but that may not matter in his race against President Barack Obama.

Those are the findings of a new Pew Research Center poll released a month before Romney is set to become the first Mormon presidential nominee of a major political party.

The survey found widespread misgivings about the Mormon religion.

Nearly two-thirds of non-Mormons see Romney's faith as very different from their own. Just half consider it a Christian faith.

Despite that level of discomfort, the poll shows Romney is still locked in a very close race with Obama. The survey also found that those who know Romney is a devout Mormon say they are comfortable with his religious beliefs.
