There is a famous quote that goes something like "America is a nation of
faith, but not any particular kind of faith".

The quote might be in reference to American's wanting a President with faith.

I could have sworn this is a quote from President Eisenhower, but I
still haven't found it. I am pretty sure it is early to mid-20th century.

I am looking for the full quote and (of course) the person who said it.

Could this be the quote you are thinking of?

"America makes no sense unless it is founded in a deeply felt
religious faith?and I don't care what it is."
--President Dwight D. Eisenhower

That sounds like something Eisenhower could have said, who added "In
God we trust" to US currency.
