Voted NOTA.  The President's religion shouldn't matter, as long as he/she doesn't govern according to his/her beliefs.

If I had to pick one to be concerned about it, it would be the evangelical, since I'm a gay, pro-feminist, social liberal.  Yes, I'd be more concerned about an evangelical POTUS than a Muslim POTUS, as no Muslim would get anywhere in the US politically by supporting Sharia Law.

None as long as it does not interfere with others' belief or religion (normal, likes freedom.)

I would ideally like the president to be a Christian and to truly embrace his or her faith in every decision that the president has to make, but I wouldn't actively oppose a president who was Jewish or Muslim (especially since they at least believe in parts of the Bible) but supported the values Christians care about in office.

Can we have a real Christian conservative president instead of having our party go down the road of populism and nationalism, with strains of liberal-tarianism?  Let the loss of the House be a lesson that we need to return to the party of Marco Rubio, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Rick Santorum, and Bill Lee.  We need a bold and optimistic vision for this country that embraces Christian values!

I would be strongly opposed to an explicitly and outwardly atheist President. Aside from that I don't care what religion they are.

wouldn't bother me exactly for the President to be an atheist, but I always think of the stress of having a position like that without someone to pray to.

None, as long as they respect the constitutional right to freedom of religion and separation of church and state it's all gucci.

Why?

I'm simply not comfortable with the leader of the free world being someone that believes in nothing higher than themselves. Religion provides essential moral grounding to put things in perspective. Outside of positions like the Presidency I wouldn't care, but when you are at the very top, with no civil authority more powerful than you, it does matter.

These kind of statements need to go and crawl in a pit and never return. Barely any American muslims would want this. If I was in leadership, my religion would have no influence on my policy. That's personal. Hate me because of my policy and immaturity and idiocy, not because of my religion, of which I would never use to oppress or harm anyone.

I'll never cast my vote for an Evangelical Christian under any capacity. No other group has done more damage to the environment and safety of this world than those bible-thumping hypocrites who want to unleash amajgeddon in the name of the sky dandy.
