ABC 4 – Documentary maker backs Mitt Romney, looks at Mormon issue: Story by Chris Vanocur

A new poll is being released, one that shows a lot of misunderstanding about the LDS church. And because of this, a new documentary is being made which hopes to educate Americans about Mormons.

When documentary maker Mitch Davis kept hearing news reports about why a Mormon can’t be elected president, he grabbed his camera in California and started asking why not? But Davis isn’t just doing a documentary, there’s also a poll of 600 South Carolinians asking them about the LDS church. South Carolina could be an important presidential primary state for Mitt Romney.

Davis, a Mormon, makes it very clear: He wants Mitt Romney to be president. But he also wants Romney to be able to run without religious discrimination. And in addition to a full length documentary, Davis is also creating a political action group to support Romney’s expected presidential campaign.
