What Barack and Hilary have going for them

America has never had a black president or a female one. But race and gender aren't the biggest obstacles to the White House. Data360 has survey data on the percentage of Americans who said they would vote for the following: A Catholic candidate: 95% A black candidate: 94% A Jewish candidate: 92% A female candidate: 88% A gay candidate: 55% An atheist candidate: 45%

Yep, black, female or Jewish doesn't matter so much as long as you've got god. Somebody remind me what century we're in. [via Freakonomics]
