Mormon Backlash down South?

Via Jonathan Martin.

Romney is lagging far behind McCain and Huck in the rural counties.

But he’s winning the suburbs and exurbs around Nashville and Atlanta. Places like Forsyth Co (GA) and Williamson Co (TN).

Why the difference?

As anybody from these states can tell you, these areas are demographically different than everywhere else.

They’re conservative and reliably Republican, but they’re full of transients (“come-heres”) who tend to hail from the northeast and midwest.

And they’re not likely to have any hang-ups on such matters as Mitt’s faith.
