Contributing sentiments towards policy:

42% : In the pending effort against affirmative action, Blum's legal team failed to persuade Burroughs or any of the other lower court judges that heard the challenges that consideration of an applicant's race, among other criteria, violated federal law or the Constitution.
41% : Among those in the spectator seats in April 2015 was Edward Blum, a conservative activist who'd created an entity called Students for Fair Admissions and begun raising millions of dollars from right-wing donors for this broadside against affirmative action at Harvard and, in a case filed simultaneously in November 2014, against the University of North Carolina.
38% : The court, which already had demonstrated an aversion to racial remedies, in June showed a startling disregard for precedent when it reversed the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that guaranteed a right to abortion nationwide.
