Only 53% would accept Jewish PM

Only 53% of Dutch voters would accept a Jewish prime minister, according to a poll in De Pers newspaper on Tuesday.

A Muslim premier would have the support of just 27% of voters but 75% would accept a black pm, the poll found.
But only 3% of Dutch citizens would strongly object if the next Dutch prime minister was female. Some 13% are opposed to a homosexual leader.
