Well...Mitt Romney's stock is starting to rise from what I can sense, not that I'm much of a politics follower. I've expressed why I'm skeptical of Romney's candidacy, in short, I doubt Americans are ready to elect a non-monotheist to our highest office. That being said, here is a revealing quote from the president of the Latter Day Saints:

Although there's nothing in Mormonism and Evolution to suggest any high church official agrees with that accommodation, the next to last document in the book, a quote from current church president Gordon B. Hinckley, is revealing. He told a reporter in 2002 he had studied evolution. "Studied all about it," he said. "Didn't bother me then. Doesn't bother me now."

Remember, this is a religion which believes that humans evolve up a great chain of being.
