Should Mitt Romney open up about his LDS faith during the general election, or try to avoid the issue altogether? His supporters seem to be split on the issue, but attacks may open up a window for the Republican nominee.
Commentary's Seth Mandel argues Democrats are likely to portray the issue "in the most negative light possible." That means Romney, and other Mormons, will be able to discuss the topic without looking too eager to talk about it.
The best antidote to this may be the familiarity with voters that all presidential candidates attain in the age of long campaigns, 24-hour news networks, and ubiquitous social media. Or it may be for the Mormon community to do its best to counter the Democrats’ campaign against the religion. But now faced with trying to win Democratic votes against an incumbent Democratic president, it may still be perilous for Romney to raise the issue himself.
