The trinity of sins that call a person’s character into question according to pjHusband. I agree. Alas, we are but simpleton Republicans. Via ABC:
Mitt Romney’s religion is far less of a concern to potential Republican voters than it once was, and a candidate’s race or sex are non-issues for vast majorities. But if a GOP contender supports gay civil unions — or has committed marital infidelity — all bets are off.
Twenty percent of Republicans and Republican leaning-independents in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they’d be less likely to support a candidate who’s a Mormon; that compares to 36 percent when Romney entered the national political stage in December 2006.
Far more, 54 percent, say they’d be less apt to support a candidate for president who’s been unfaithful to his or her spouse.
Got that, Newt?
