NCSC contracted with GBA Strategies to conduct a comprehensive public opinion survey of 1,000 registered voters. The survey was conducted by telephone between November 12-16, 2014. Survey findings are considered accurate within +/- 3.1 percent, 19 times out of 20.
Key findings of the survey include:
- Courts remain the most trusted branch of government
- Court users express confidence in fairness of proceedings, but have doubts about customer service and job performance
- There is a strong demand for greater availability of online services
- The public worries that politics undermines the impartiality of the court system
