We atheists are as popular as ever, I see.
At least the “yes” is over 50%?
But since no one needs to worry about 47% of atheists, net of 7%?!
If these numbers are reflective of the actual US population, and not just say, urban areas, which are typically more open and progressive, then I’m surprised, and happy to see that over half would vote for any of these candidates if they were the most qualified. I’m sad that the qualifier in the question is, “if *YOUR* party nominated a candidate…”
I almost always vote for democrats because generally those candidates best represent my my hope for our governments, but I have voted for a republican here, and a green party member there, for various offices, because *THAT* candidate was the best choice. Okay, so the last republican for whom I voted was running unopposed, but he is the only CPA in our state senate. Forgive me if I want someone actually schooled in finance deciding on budget issues. He wasn’t unopposed in the primary, however. That douchebag Jim Gilmore (former RNC chair) funneled national money into VA to run new republican candidates against any incumbent state delegate or senator who had voted against the party line, even once. I’m happy to say Sen Stosch was targeted because he frequently votes for the best interest of us citizens whom he represents, not his party line. So, you’re damn skippy I voted for him. He was the most qualified candidate!
