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.
