Post Americans Far More Comfortable With Gay Presidential Candidate Than Evangelical

Quote:
As the Republican presidential candidate field grows rapidly, and as the GOP panders to the Christian right promising to "defend traditional marriage" and the "assault of religious freedom," political strategists might want to take a look at the latest WSJ/NBC poll.

Asked how they would feel about presidential candidates with certain qualities or characteristics, far more Americans said they would "be enthusiastic" or "be comfortable with" a candidate who is gay than a candidate who is an evangelical Christian.

A very large majority, 61 percent, said they would be enthusiastic or comfortable with a gay candidate, while just 52 percent said the same of an evangelical Christian.

On the opposite side, just 37 percent said they would "have some reservations about" or "be very uncomfortable with" a gay candidate, while 44 percent said the same of an evangelical Christian.

The poll also found just 33 percent of Americans supportive of a Tea Party candidate, and just 30 percent supportive of a candidate with no political experience.

Some people have no clue as to how their "brand" is perceived outside the circles that readily assume that brand... :thumbsup

I believe most Americans know that - regardless of their personal feelings about homosexuality in general - somebody being gay is not going to affect their lives. Whereas, an evangelical man in power has the ability to impact everybody's life with the changes to laws and rules he might endorse or implement.
