This report contains an index of American's overall confidence in leaders from 11 key sectors of society: the military, medicine, education, religion, nonprofits and charities, business, local government, state government, Congress, the executive branch (the president, the vice president, and their advisers), and the press. In addition, the study contains 25 key findings related to gender, political affiliation, ideology, religious orientation, as well as class and educational background. A team of researchers under the direction of lead coauthors Todd L. Pittinsky, Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government and a core faculty member at CPL, and Seth A. Rosenthal, CPL Post-Doctoral Fellow, came up with these findings by taking the survey data collected by Yankelovich and performing statistical analysis on them.
