The character of the person who occupies the Oval Office matters to the vast majority of Americans, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey. Across party lines and religious groups, roughly nine-in-ten or more say it is either somewhat or very important to have a president who lives a moral, ethical life. But Democrats and those who lean toward the Democratic Party are more likely than Republicans and Republican leaners to say it is “very” important (71% vs. 53%). Americans overall are less likely to say it is important to have a president with strong religious beliefs; on this question, Republicans are more likely than Democrats to to prize such a trait.
