Gary Johnson Receives Highest Grade From Atheist Group

Secular Coalition's Presidential Scorecard gave the Libertarian a "B" while Obama and Romney only received a "C" and an "F"


A national group of atheists gave President Obama a lukewarm grade and Mitt Romney a failing grade on statements and actions touching on topics of religion and government entanglement.

The highest grade in the Secular Coalition's Presidential Scorecard for the 2012 elections was a "B," given to Libertarian Gary Johnson. Democrat Obama received a "C" and Republican Romney was hit with an "F." Green Party candidate Jill Stein was handed an incomplete.

This Presidential Election Scorecard was produced by the Secular Coalition for America, which serves as the national lobby for atheists, agnostics, humanists and other nontheistic Americans.
