Romney also benefited from his Mormon religion, the poll results show. Romney captured 94 percent of the voters who identified themselves as Mormon, which made up 25 percent of all Republicans participating in the GOP caucuses.

I’ve claimed previously that LDS voters would come out for Romney. I’m not sure that this is a good thing, but if evangelicals can support Huckabee purely because of his religion (let’s face it, there is no other reason for anyone other than his mother to vote for him) then I suppose Mormons can play that game as well. At least in the West.

Note two things:

  1. Romney would have won without the Mormon vote, but he ran away with the state because of it.
  2. Certainly some Mormons voted in the Democratic primary as well. In fact I know that at least one family member did so, therefore 94% of Mormon Republicans that voted voted for Mitt, but some number less than 94% of Mormons that voted for Mitt.
