Faith v. Experience

As of late, the two Republican presidential candidate who have been in the lead are Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. 

Many Americans are being faced to make a very difficult decision, as the issue of religion comes into play. 

Mitt Romney is of the Mormon faith and Rick Santorum is a Catholic. 

It wasn’t until the presidency of JFK that a person of the Catholic faith was elected into office

Because Romney’s religion does not fall within the Judeo Christian religion, Americans are hesitant to elect him. Without this one BIG mark against him, Romney would pull incredibly far ahead because he is extraordinarily experienced and knowledgeable.  

It seems as though Americans are starting to look past Romney for the next most qualified person– Santorum. 

What will the people choose? The candidate that most aligns with their faith or the person who has the most qualifications?
