Final Results of the Recent "Would You Vote for an Atheist" Poll

In the recent poll in which I asked whether or not you'd vote for an atheist, over 3/4 of voters said they would. Here are the final results:

Yes: 76%
No: 24%

Admittedly, this poll was a very small sampling. However, if it's an indication of how a majority of Americans feel, it could bode well for atheists who want to enter the political arena. Still, it's doubtful we'll see a noticeable increase in atheist politicians on the national stage.  I think the potential outrage by believers would make most atheist politicians reluctant to come out of the religious closet. If it was revealed there were more non-believers currently serving as elected officials, I wouldn't be surprised. Who knows, we may have already had  prior presidents of the U.S. who were atheists.
