With Alabama and Mississippi losses, Romney continues to stumble in Bible Belt

(CNN) - Mitt Romney’s losses in Alabama and Mississippi on Tuesday offered more stark evidence of a huge stumbling in his quest for the GOP nomination and the White House: his difficulty winning in the evangelical-rich Bible Belt.

With Rick Santorum’s victories in Alabama and Mississippi, he and Newt Gingrich have taken all but one Bible Belt state in the primaries.

    Of course he struggles there. The political decisions are not based on politics but religion. Sadly, the southern voters are rejecting the best candidate to beat Obama. Fortunately, Romney still has the majority of votes, states and delegates.

    In response to Wake up People: The incident you referred to occurred after Mornons were kicked out of New York, Ohio, Missouri and Illinois. It occurred after our leaders were killed and our women were raped. It occurred after our property was taken at gunpoint. Sadly, the government sat idle as this occurred. I don't condone what happened, but you have to put it in context.

    @ Wake Up people
    I was beginning to wonder if any other bloggers on this site know about this. People should do a little checking of the history of the Mormons and see how they hated the Christians and how they never hesitated to kill them.

    To Bob in Phoenix – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints claims to be a restoration of Christianity (which was predicted in the Bible). Unlike Christian demominations today, we actually believe Christ was resurrected. In addition, the trinity is not in the Bible, but the Mormon belief in the Godhead is. You don't have to agree with us, but please don't misrepresent us.
