No, he would have not. What makes you think another Mormon would have a better chance? One of Romney's negatives was that he was a mormon and alienated the christain base of the GOP.

Mormons are Christians!

I was being flip about Huntsman, but he was actually your best candidate OUT OF ALL OF THEM.

He could have appealed to independents more than any of them.

Since most of the data in post-election polling has offered little beyond a parade of ugly news, here's a glimmer of hope from Gallup:

For the first time in Gallup trends since 2000, a majority of Americans say it is not the federal government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage. Prior to 2009, a majority always felt the government should ensure healthcare coverage for all, though Americans' views have become more divided in recent years...Republicans, including Republican-leaning independents, are mostly responsible for the drop since 2007 in Americans' support for government...
