Depressing bar chart of the day

Would you be comfortable with an atheist president? 2011 US survey says…

Percentages of US population saying somewhat uncomfortable or very uncomfortable.

Overwhelming majorities of Republican and Democrat voters say that they would be uncomfortable with an atheist serving as president (80% and 70% respectively).

And as the Friendly Atheist blogger points out, 14% of Democrats would actually be more uncomfortable with an atheist president than a Muslim president!
