NJ: Ex-aide says religion is biggest Romney hurdle

Mitt Romney’s religion — not his frequently parsed Massachusetts record on health care reform — is the biggest threat to his front-running status in the GOP presidential primary, a former top adviser said on Tuesday.

Carl Forti, Romney’s deputy campaign manager and political director in 2008, told the National Journal Insiders Conference that the yet-undeclared candidate in 2012 will face prejudice because of his Mormonism.

“It’s not something you can test. It’s not something you can poll,’’ Forti said after a bipartisan panel at the Grand Hyatt in Washington handicapped the 2012 field. “There’s just a bias out there.’’
