Support for collecting the 2005 data was provided by Atlantic Philanthropies in a grant to the Center for Democracy and the Third Sector (CDATS) at Georgetown University, and by the Weidenbaum Center at Washington University in St. Louis. Marc Morjé Howard, with the assistance of James L. Gibson, was primarily responsible for executing that survey. We greatly appreciate Howard's untiring efforts on the 2005 project, as well as the support for this research Steven S. Smith provided. We also appreciate the research assistance of Marc Hendershot, Jessica Flanigan, and Christina Boyd on that project. For the subsequent two interviews of the 2005–2006 panel survey, support was provided by the Law and Social Sciences Program of the National Science Foundation (SES-0553156). Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation. Additional funding for the 2006 survey was provided by the Mershon Center for International Security Studies of the Ohio State University (“The Legitimacy of the Supreme Court and Critical Nominations”), to whom we are much indebted.
