Debate 2008: Black or Mormon?

A new poll finds that 43 percent of Americans couldn't bring themselves to vote for a Mormon president.

Bad news for Mitt Romney, the outgoing Mormon Governor or Massachussetts seeking the GOP nomination in 2008.

But it raises an interesting question. Who has it tougher in 2008? The Mormon or the black man. Romney or Barack Obama.

It's intriguing because they're both probably the #2 candidates for their respective parties right now. Say Hilary and McCain stumble. And you have a Romney v. Obama contest.

Does racism override anti-LDS sentiment? Who wins?
