ABC News/ Facebook Poll

What role should the personal faith of a President play in his/her decision-making?
  • A.  It should play a strong role
  • B.  it should not play any role
  • C.  It should play a balanced role with other considerations
  • D.  Not Sure

The United States exists in the real world, influences and is influenced by real world events, and should be concerned with what happens here.  As such, the president should make decisions on the basis of facts, rather than on faith.

Faith is belief in the absence of evidence, or in the presence of countervailing evidence.  Faith should not be the basis for policy.
