a new poll from the Pew Research Center
shows that it might not help him much.

According to the poll, only 53% of American have a favorable opinion of Mormons. This is the same percentage of people who view Muslim Americans favorably.

At the bottom of the list: Athiests – only 35% favorable.

At the top: Jews – 76% favorable.
