An Iowa Cabbie Weighs in on Romney

From CBS News' Scott Conroy, who is in Des Moines, Iowa today covering the Mitt Romney campaign:

"I'm in a cab with two other reporters on my way to Mitt Romney's only public event in Des Moines today. The driver asked us what we're doing here and we told him we're covering a presidential campaign. He asked which one and we told him Romney's. 'That's the right one,' he said.

"The cab driver said he didn't get a chance to watch the speech yesterday but I asked him if he thinks Romney's Mormonism is a problem. He said 'idiots do' but he doesn't. 'Is it a problem that I'm a Methodist cab driver?' He wondered aloud."
