A Gallup poll taken last month has found that 66 percent of people questioned feel that the US is not “ready” for a Mormon president and 29 percent said the US is ready.

Sixty-four percent said the US is not ready for an Asian president.

On the other hand, 61 percent said the US is ready for a woman as president.

The Gallup question was asked this way: “Generally speaking, do you think Americans are ready to elect a/an [see below] as president, or not?”

The subject has come up frequently as Governor Mitt Romney eyes a run for president.

An LA Times-Bloomberg poll this year, which asked people if they would vote for candidates of various religious groups, found that 37 percent said they would not vote for a Mormon presidential candidate.
