The Zogby Poll, conducted for the American Bible Society, shows by far that the most important virtues are truthfulness and integrity. And respondents said they want a president that understands accountability to God and has a servant mentality.
Six in 10 said they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who speaks publicly about following the example of leaders from the Bible and who uses the Bible consistently for public and personal matters.
According to Zogby, most of those surveyed, 78 percent, view candidates citing Scripture when discussing political stances as positive. Almost 50 percent said they would not vote for a presidential candidate who did not believe in God.
But 20 percent said they would vote for someone who did not believe in God and 20 percent said this would not affect their vote. The poll surveyed 1,008 adults, and nearly one-quarter said they were born again.
