Hindus Rated 'Fairly Warmly' In USA
Most religious groups in USA rate Hindus fairly warmly, according to 'polling and analysis' posted by Washington DC headquartered Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan fact tank, on February 15.
Asked to rate a variety of groups on a 'feeling thermometer' ranging from 0 to 100, Americans' feelings toward Hindus have shifted from relatively neutral place of 50 in 2014 on the thermometer to somewhat warmer rating of 58.
Americans aged 18-29 put the Hindus at 64 on the thermometer, which is higher than Jews, Atheists, Evangelical Christians, Mainline Protestants, Muslims and Mormons. Jews gave Hindus a thermometer rating of 70, which is highest given to Hindus by any religious group.
Hindus were rated at 70 by those who had personal connections with someone in the Hindu community, as compared to 54 given by those who had no such connection.
But only 22% of Americans say they personally know a Hindu.
These were among the findings of a new Pew Research Center survey of 4,248 adults conducted between January nine to 23 on the Center's nationally representative American Trends Panel.
There are about three million Hindus in USA.
