Who the heck is Mitt Romney?
The constitution says that there should be no religious test for any public a office. Most of our founding fathers weren't even christian. They were either atheists or deists. They wouldn't care if romney is or isn't a christian.
"well, i'm still looking to see where they stand on the issues."
"okay, like what?"
"well, like, the economy, and stuff"
"alright, well, what specifically about the economy"
"well, like, it's important"
and so forth. these people generally aren't independent because they've weighed competing worldview a priori assumptions and found them both wanting in favor of a third set - they are independent because they don't bother to self educate, and thus have no idea which set of a priori assumptions they are closest to.

Most of our founding fathers being atheists or deists, would probably be a bigger deal, were they to run nowadays, then it was back then. They didn't have media dogging everything they did, and the average citizen probably hadn't heard if they were or weren't christian. The GOP is supposed to be a bit worried about loss of some evangelical christian vote with Romney. But, I think most of those folks would likely still vote for him over Obama. I've said before, I'm less concerned about Romney's Mormonism than his flipping on issues.

I don't think it matters much at all, but if he gets the nomination, he still has a long way to go to beat Obama....
