What do Democrats have against Mormons?

A new Gallup poll shows 22% would be hesitant to vote for a Mormon to be President. The breakdown doesn't show much variation, except for one group - Democrats.

The new Gallup poll, conducted June 9-12, finds nearly 20% of Republicans and independents saying they would not support a Mormon for president. That is slightly lower than the 27% of Democrats saying the same.

Liberals and the media elite are still congratulating themselves for their inclusiveness and diversity after the first woman Speaker and of course, the first black President. Obviously both of those are notable achievements, but you'd think the super open tent party wouldn't be leading the pack in religious bigotry. Prior to the Gallup poll, a Quinnipiac poll showed even greater concern about Mormonism. It seems the only question Mitt Romney consistently gets from the media is about his church - CNN's Piers Morgan attacked the Mormon Church during a recent interview and I think MSNBC has mandated a to have some variation of  'Will Mormon faith hurt Romney?' running on the lower third at least 40% of the broadcast day. There's even a Broadway show running called 'The Book of Mormon' which has won 9 Tony awards.

Why all the anti-Mormon sentiment?

Exit Question: Why doesn't Harry 'we won't smell the tourists anymore' Reid ever get the same attack?
