Full question wording: Now I'm going to read a list of political leaders. For each, tell me how much confidence you have in each leader to do the right thing regarding world affairs - a lot of confidence, some confidence, not too much confidence, or no confidence at all: German Chancellor Angela Merkel
Notes: Confidence combines "a lot of confidence" and "some confidence" responses. No Confidence combines "not too much confidence" and "no confidence at all."
