Religion has taken a prominent place in the presidential election. Mitt Romney is a member of  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The church's members have received tough questions about his faith and the history of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Nevada has a diverse and politically active LDS voter base but how much will those voters' religion influence who they vote for? In a recent Pew poll, 46% of LDS members said they believe a lot of discrimination exists toward them. We talk with local LDS members about what it will take to win their vote in Nevada.
