Voting for an Atheist

Most Americans says they are willing to vote for a qualified presidential candidate who is an atheist. A Gallup poll finds 54% would do so - the highest percentage since the question was first asked in 1958. Back then, only 18% said they would vote for an atheist. The 54% mark is still less than the percentage that say they would vote for gays/lesbians (68%) and Muslims (58%).
