Contributing sentiments towards policy:

49% : "This decision by the appellate court is ill-advised, cannot stand, and should be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which we hope will reaffirm that citizens have a private right of action to bring forward lawsuits under Section 2," the group said.
44% : Election law experts say most challenges seeking to enforce Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act are brought by private plaintiffs and that the Justice Department has limited resources to pursue such cases.
42% : "Our cases have assumed -- without deciding -- that the Voting Rights Act of 1965 furnishes an implied cause of action under section 2."Gorsuch wrote that there was no need in that case for the justices to consider who may sue.
