WASHINGTON — Most Mormons believe Americans are ready to elect the first Mormon president in the upcoming election, according to results of a Pew Research Center survey announced Thursday.
The Pew Research Center, a public policy research foundation, conducted the survey independently from the Mormon church at a time Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, a Mormon, is leading in some polls to become the next US president.
“Many Mormons feel they are misunderstood, discriminated against and not accepted by other Americans,” the Pew report on the survey said. “Yet, at the same time, a majority of Mormons think that acceptance of Mormonism is rising.
“They have highly positive views of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a fellow Mormon, and a majority think the country is ready to elect a Mormon president.”
