Spike Lee on 2012 race: Voters to decide between 'Obama or Mormon'

Outspoken film director and Barack Obama supporter Spike Lee believes the 2012 general election will be “very, very, very close.” Lee who recently spoke with Vulture, says he’s met Romney and he believes that Romney’s Mormon faith will be the deciding factor in the upcoming presidential election. The Huffington Post reports:

Despite publicly criticizing Mitt Romney for being unable to “hang” with President Barack Obama, controversial director Spike Lee recently told Vulture that when he met the conservative politician at Reagan National Airport a few years ago the two shook hands.

“I was just in D.C. and he was there and he said, ‘What’s up, Spike?'” Lee recalled. “I said, ‘What’s happening, Mitt?’ We were in line getting something to eat. So I said what’s up and shook hands.”

Lee, an outspoken Obama supporter, told Vulture that although he believes the presidential election is going to be “very, very, very close,” at the end of the day, it may come down to Romney’s religion.
