Evangelicals: Romney is a Mormon?

No bump for Mitt Romney today in Rasmussen's polls, which is mildly surprising given that he had his best week of the campaign and Mike Huckabee had his worst.  Huckabee stayed even at 19%, while Rudy's lead jumped to 5% (really, watching these polls is like watching the stock market, except far more fun!).

Buried, however, within Rasmussen's daily summary of the race was this gem of a sentence:

Evangelical Christians were less likely to know that Romney is a Mormon that other voters.

It's true, it doesn't say what the percentage difference is between evangelicals and other Republicans, nor does it say how those polled would factor that into their voting selection.  But it's an interesting line for Rasmussen to include all the same.
