As a Mormon, I thought that was in his favor. I';ve seen te Mormon MO up close and they really are loyal to their group and caring of the less fortunate. Had Romney won, I would not have been horrified but I could see that he had trouble gaining traction because he's been too rich for too long and the ultra-wealthy really are not like ordinary people. That doesn't mean they are bad people, just alien in many respects.
Obama has been a let-down, maybe just because we expected more. What was I expecting? Not the lying and spying, blaming and power grabs, that's for sure.
