Ill read the name of a groups and Id like you to rate that group using the feeling thermometer. Ratings between 50 degrees and 100 degrees mean that you feel favorable and warm toward the group. Ratings between 0 degrees and 50 degrees mean that you dont feel favorable toward the group and that you dont care too much for that group. How would you rate Muslims?
