Contributing sentiments towards policy:

51% : As the Voting Rights Act has evolved and been amended, it addresses not only restrictions on an individual's right to vote but on official action -- such as redistricting maps -- that give minority groups "less opportunity than other members of the electorate to participate in the political process and to elect representatives of their choice."
36% : Roberts and the other justices should similarly bolster voting rights by reversing the 8 Circuit panel's misreading of the law if and when it comes before them.
