September 2006 Gallup Poll

A September 2006 Gallup survey finds that about three fifths of Americans believe the country is ready to have a woman president. Similar proportions say that the country is ready for a black or Jewish president, but the numbers who think the country is ready for a Hispanic, Asian or Mormon president are somewhat lower, and far smaller numbers say the country would elect an atheist or gay or lesbian president.
