Larison faces reality:

The point, as I have said before, is that anti-Mormonism is widespread and every demographic participates in it to some significant extent.  It is unmistakable that the strongest concentrations of opposition are found among evangelicals (53% opposed) and, of course, those who think that a candidate’s faith is “very important” (59% opposed), but the concentrations in every other group are also very high.

Matt comments here. Mormonism is a total non-issue for me. But overt sectarianism isn't. In that sense, I'm more sympathetic to Romney than to the Christianist base of his party. For the Hewitt brigades, it really is petard and hoist time.
