I caught this interesting tidbit while browsing through the latest WSJ / NBC poll [pdf]. Q19 of that poll asks all voters how comfortable they are in voting for potential unnamed presidential candidates who bear a variety of characteristics.

Given the choices enthusiastic, comfortable, have some reservations, very uncomfortable and not sure,  61% said they were either enthusiastic or comfortable voting for “a person who is gay or lesbian.” Only 52% said they were enthusiastic or comfortable voting for “an evangelical Christian.”
