survey says

Republicans like atheists more than they like Muslims

Republicans dislike Muslims more than practitioners of any other faith, according to a new Pew poll.

The survey asked respondents to rate various religious groups on a "feeling thermometer," from 0 to 100. The results: Republicans put Muslims at the very bottom, with a feeling score of 33 — just a smidge below atheists.

On the Democratic side, Mormons scored the lowest (44) followed by atheists (46) and Muslims (47).
