Poll: Only One-Third Support Supreme Court’s Voting Rights Ruling
According to the survey, a majority — 51 percent — said they disapproved of the ruling. Among African-Americans, more than seven in 10 said they did not agree with the high court’s findings. Whites disapproved at a 48-33 percent clip, while a full half of Hispanics said they were against the ruling.
Voters were more supportive of a pair of the court’s decisions on same-sex marriage, echoing similar findings in Pew and USA Today polls released earlier this week.
Of those surveyed, 56 percent say they support the extension of federal spousal benefits to gay couples legally married in their home states, while 51 percent said they backed the move to strike down California’s prohibition on gay marriage.
