Good Mormon Democrats? Utahns say it’s possible.

89% of Utah voters say that a person can be a good Mormon and a good Democrat:

What I would really like to see is if those numbers would change any if Utah voters were asked about the possibility of being a good Republican / Tea Partier / Socialist / Green / Communist / Anarchist / Libertarian, etc.

On a related note, this is also worth a read. It’s a discussion of the relationship between the LDS’s Church’s recent call for more service/charity and the small-government vs. big-government political debate:
