    NEW YORK A new Gallup survey confirms that Americans claim they will be willing to vote for a woman (read: Hillary Clinton) or a black (read: Barack Obama) for president next year. But they still raise questions about voting for a well-qualified Mormon (Mitt Romney) or 72-year-old (John McCain) or someone who has been divorced twice (Rudy Giuliani).

    Surprisingly, nearly as many say they would vote for a homosexual (55%) as say they would vote for a 72-year-old (57%).

    Most censored: atheists.

    "While Americans overwhelmingly say they would vote for a black, woman, Catholic, or Hispanic president, they are less likely to say they would support a Mormon candidate, one who is 72 years old, or one who has been married three times," Gallup reported.

    Asked if they'd be willing to vote for a "generally well-qualified" candidate with the followign characterisitics, here's how the tally went in the Feb. 9- 11 poll.

    Black 94%
    Jewish 92%
    A woman 88%
    Hispanic 87%
    Mormon 72%
    Married for third time 67%
    72 years of age 57%
    A homosexual 55%
    An atheist 45%

    Conservatives express more misgivings about candidates from all of the above categories -- except the age question, where they are more disapproving of voting for someone 72 or over.

  2. What a bunch of hogwash.....I know it sounds politically correct to be open to 'fags n darkies'.....but you really believe that when the curtain is closed all those people will vote for either? i think not. And its not just the souther boys either....the elitist up in the North East and the farmers of the mid west are no different
