Religion survey: Jews score highest, Muslims lowest

< Previous Page

The Pew results match closely with a similar "feelings thermometer" study in 2007 by political scientists Robert Putnam and David Campbell for their 2010 book, "American Grace."

The overall order of warm-to-cold views for religious groups is unchanged between the two studies. However, the exact ratings for groups can’t be compared directly because their methodology differed. (Campbell and Putnam used a phone survey for their research.)

Campbell, a political scientist at the University of Notre Dame, said he was particularly struck that Pew found "there hasn’t been any real change in views on Mormons in spite of the [hit Broadway play] "The Book of Mormon" and Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and all the attention to the so-called ‘Mormon Moment.’ "
