    Majority of Americans agree with Supreme Court’s affirmative action ban: Poll – By Eden Villalovas (Washington Examiner) / Jan 16, 2024

    A majority of people back the Supreme Court’s decision from last year to end race-conscious admission programs in higher education, according to a survey released Tuesday

    A Gallup Center on Black Voices report found that 68% of respondents said the highest court’s June 2023 decision to end affirmative action in colleges and universities is “mostly a good thing.” However, the survey showed a divide among black respondents. Only slightly more, 52%, reported the ruling was a good decision than the 48% who said it was a poor one.

    In contrast, Asian, Hispanic, and white adults mostly view the ruling favorably. The survey found that 63% of Asian people, 68% of Hispanic people, and 72% of white people agreed with the court’s move to end affirmative action — 38%, 32%, and 28%, respectively, viewed the decision as a negative thing.
