Senate majority leader Harry Reid is Mormon. But that doesn't automatically lock in the Mormon vote. Mormon businessmen booed him at a meeting this summer, and cheered his opponent, Sharron Angle, instead. And LDS leaders weren't too pleased when he didn't support the church's ban on gay marriage. So who really holds the Mormon vote? Is this Sharron Angle's opportunity to grab the 7% of Nevada's population? Or did her pastor's comment - where he called Mormons "kooky" and a "cult" - hurt her instead? A political reporter updates us on the power of the Mormon vote this season.
