Gary Johnson and Jill Stein both ask for the atheist vote…kind of July 26, 2016

David Silverman, President of American Atheists, recently asked both third party candidates if they will ask for the atheist vote. Both Gary Johnson and and Jill Stein replied and both gave equally apathetic answers.

I do admit it’s nice to see candidates acknowledge atheists exist, but this is literally the least they can do. I feel like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders recently gave better answers about religion and they had to deal with appeasing a much larger audience. Third parties have much less to lose and it would have been nice for them to explicitly ask for the atheist vote and acknowledge religious privilege. Oh well. This atheist wasn’t going to vote for either of them anyway.
