AFFIRMATIVE ACTION REACTION: Poll Shows Most Americans Support SCOTUS Ruling

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.03.23

The Supreme Court’s ruling on affirmative action may not be as unpopular as protesters suggest.

According to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll, 52% of Americans believe that the SCOTUS ruled correctly against Harvard University and the University of North Carolina’s affirmative action policies.

32% of Americans disapprove of the decision, while 16% are unsure.

From The Daily Wire:

The poll found that the vast majority of Republicans, 75%, and most independents, 58%, agree with Justices John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett on race-based admissions. Just 26% of Democrats feel the same way, according to the poll.

Broken down along racial lines, most white people, 60%, think the decision was the right one, while 58% of Asians agree. Among Hispanics, 40% approve and 40% disapprove, and 52% of black people disapprove of the Court’s decision.

However, the poll found that roughly two-thirds of Americans believe Asian and white students have a “fair chance” of admission into the college of their choice, while that number is 50% for Hispanic students and 47% for black students, according to ABC.
