Two words on why he doesn't have a double digit lead: Bradley Effect.
Everytime I read this thread title, I see "Moron" instead of "Mormon"
But seriously. It has nothing to do with him being Mormon. I don't think anybody cares. It's because he keeps saying things that make people really nervous about what a Romney presidency would look like. It should be sooooooo easy.
This should be his message imo:
"I'm a wealthy businessman. My parents are wealthy. I gave away my inheritance, but granted I still had a massive leg up in life. I want everybody to have a leg up in life, and we accomplish this by creating an environment where entrepreneurship (and the people whom they hire to start their business) can thrive.
Some people criticize me for making hundreds of millions of dollars from leveraged buyouts. I was driven to be successful in business, and due to government regulations leveraged buyouts are a highly profitable business. You can't blame a driven individual to make their money within the framework of what is essentially a stupid bureaucracy. If you don't like how I made my money, or think I'm too rich, then consider that Obama wants more regulations on finance, not less. Regulations create a fixed game, and actually makes it easier for connected individuals or financially driven individuals like me to greatly profit. So if you want less 1%er Mitt Romneys in the world, voting for Obama is the last thing you should be doing."
Trying to make some kind of stand on principles when it's time to cast your vote is a bit late to the game. If you want change in the Republican party, where were you the last four years, or if you didn't like Bush, the eight years before that? Better yet, stay Libertarian and go 0 for the-rest-of-your-life when it comes to elections. Hey, you stood your ground but no one from your party ever made it above dogcatcher. Well done.
romney is behind because (a) he sucks as a candidate, (b) his campaign is being run by retards, and (c) the combination of the obama/central government propaganda machine added to the MSM fluffers is very, very difficult to overcome.
it has zero to do with the fact that he is Mormon.
