    What really stuns me is the figures for a hypothetical atheist candidate. Atheism alone is the quality which a majority of Americans would not support. Theoretically, it means that the atheist is the only one on the list who could not get elected. It reminds me of this other study with similar findings. It’s disheartening and a little frightening.

    I agree, that part is especially fascinating. I do wonder, however, how people would define it. That is, would a candidate have to come out and claim to be an atheist, or is it enough if a candidate just doesn’t express a devotion to a god. Does that distinction make sense?
