Summary

The PRRI/RNS Religion News Survey was conducted by Public Religion Research Institute to examine attitudes on breaking news and emerging issues at the intersection of religion and politics. This survey explored public attitudes about personal misconduct among elected officials and the degree to which these offenses constitute significant moral problems. Questions evaluated respondents' feelings toward several different types of misconduct including financial misconduct, such as cheating on income taxes or taking bribes, and sexual misconduct, such as cheating on a spouse.
