Mormonism viewed unfavorably by many

People misunderstood "Americans Won't Vote For A Mormon President." I would vote for Romney in a heartbeat as would most Mormons. That, however, still doesn't mean that most Americans would. Most of them would not! Why not? Just look at all the controversy generated in the media lately, i.e., television, editorials, commentators, letters, etc. concerning this subject.

Baptists, Catholics, Protestants, Evangelicals, etc. would all vote against Romney simply because he is a Mormon.

Why? Because they all claim Mormons are not Christians. Well, In the strict sense, by their long held traditional doctrines, Mormons are not Christians! Mormonism is mostly opposed to their traditional "Christian" beliefs.

I know better. Mormons are Christians, but not in the traditional sense that these other churches are. Mormons believe in The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, A Godhead of 3 different personages, i.e., The Father, Son and Holy Ghost, The Book of Mormon, prophets, seers, and revelators, continuous revelation, vicarious work for the dead, marriage for eternity, missionary work, etc.. Millions of America's "traditional Christians" don't believe in any of these "strange foreign" Mormon doctrines. That's the reason they claim Mormons aren't Christians and why they won't vote for a Mormon.
