Muslim Americans Are Most Optimistic Religious Group, Study Says

Muslim Americans are more optimistic about their future than members of any other religious group in the United States, according to a Gallup report released Tuesday…

The polling found that 69% identified strongly with the United States while 65% said the same about their faith…

They are, as a group, critical of counter-terrorism measures imposed since the terror attacks and a large percentage distrust the FBI, the report said… Just 60% of Muslim Americans said they have confidence in the FBI, compared to 75% or more of Americans of other major faiths, the report said…

Americans overall rate their future a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10, but Muslim Americans rate theirs at 8.4, the report said.

Jewish Americans ranked as second most optimistic at 8.0, following by nonreligious, atheists and agnostic respondants at 7.9.

Mormans’ optimism was rated at 7.8 and Catholics at 7.7, while American Protestants were the least optimistic about the future with 7.4, the report said.

    They should’ve polled Buddhists too.

    And I would think more religious immigrants tend to be optimistic than religious natives in terms of loving America.
