Americans Don’t Want An Atheist For President
There’s a new Pew Research survey out that measures which attributes help and which attributes hurt a candidate seeking the presidency. Serving in the military topped the list of things that make a candidate more appealing, while being an atheist was the most negative factor.
In fact, Americans would rather vote for someone who had an extramarital affair than someone who doesn’t believe in a god. Some of the other traits that would help a candidate are serving as a governor or business executive and attending a prestigious university. The negatives include being gay, smoking marijuana, and never having held elected office before.
