Americans Prefer Gay President to Evangelical or Tea Partier
Perhaps a little hope for some sanity in the long-term...

Quote:In the poll, conducted by Hart Research Associates and Public Opinion Strategies for the news organizations in late April, 61 percent of respondents said they’d be either enthusiastic about or comfortable with a gay presidential candidate. For an evangelical candidate, just 52 percent said they'd be enthusiastic. And in a showing of how unpopular the Tea Party is, just 33 percent said they’d react with enthusiasm or at least a degree of comfort to a candidate affiliated with that conservative movement.

Note: the 52% for evangelical does include the 'or comfortable' category; the article just isn't clear on that.

Well, the next step is electing an atheist president. That might take another 20 years though.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Recently lost the 1 politician at least, openly atheist, and for that I think it'll be more than 20 years

Openly atheist will take a while; from all accounts we've actually had a few

That would still make him a teabagger. Both figuratively and literally. Thumbsup

If 61% want a gay president, and 52% want an evangelical president, that means that at least some Americans want a gay evangelical president. Judging by revelations over the years, there's actually no shortage of those.

And just so I won't be misunderstood, I would oppose an evangelical candidate, even if he or she is gay. I will not vote for Sarah Palin even if we find out that she does sleep with women.

I want a President who is not a religious bigot. I don't care what gender the candidate is, or what her/his sexual orientation is.

We've had too many Christian Presidents. The last thing we need is a Muslim President.
