A new survey indicates that Canadians are more likely to vote for a transgender, gay or atheist person rather than an evangelical. The Angus Reid Institute survey took a sample of 1,533 Canadian adults. They found that 85 percent said they would vote for a party that is led by a gay man; 84 percent would back a lesbian; 80 percent, an atheist; and 69 percent, a transgender. However, only 65 percent said they would support an evangelical Christian.
Evangelical politicians did much better in the United States with 72 percent of Americans saying they would vote for an evangelical presidential candidate. Interestingly, Muslims were at the bottom of choices on both lists, with only 47 percent of Americans willing to vote for a Muslim to lead their country, compared to 58 percent of Canadians.
