Gallup: Americans Say They Will Vote for a Black or Woman -- But a Mormon? A 72-Year-Old?

By E&P Staff

Published: February 20, 2007 10:30 AM ET

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.

Disclaimer for Greasemonkey: This is merely a poll, it isn't official because it isn't the election results from 2008, so it is COMPLETELY UNRELIABLE. I'll try to get ahold of a time machine and go to the future to check it out.

Funny, the Gallup shows Rudy ahead of Hillary by 2 points. Although the average is 3.8% overall.

She is beating McCain by 0.5% not much Gallup shows 3 points.

Hell read it yourself.

Head to Head poll averages......

None of this means anything the election is many many months away.

I can't believe how many people won't vote for an old guy.

But I also have to wonder if people were thinking more about the secific person beloning to each of those groups and not the group itself.

I wish Schwarzkopf would run.


Giuliani has my vote as long as he wins the primary. The republican candidate def get's my vote though....I can't think of the last time there was a Democrat I liked.

Unscientific polls with laughable sample sizes conducted by biased organizations nearly two years before the election.

Beyond meaningless. :chiefwoohaw:
