Sure, there will be celebrating or mourning among Mormons who describe themselves as political conservatives (which is to say, most of them). But most members of Mitt Romney’s faith won’t even be at results-watching events; church officials are barely acknowledging Tuesday’s vote (the top item on the LDS Web site says: “members invited to share the gospel through magazine subscriptions”); and even at the Northwest D.C. Mormon church a President Romney would attend, regular weekly classes are all that’s scheduled Tuesday night.
Remember the emotional faces and powerful words of African Americans four years ago, as the country was voting whether to elect the first black president? You won’t see much of that among Mormon Americans, regardless of Tuesday’s outcome.
