Contributing sentiments towards policy:

61% : But picking people for jobs to make an organization "look more like America" is a form of affirmative action.
61% : It's affirmative action, regardless.
55% : "Picking someone not as qualified" because of her race is affirmative action, but so is refusing even to consider the qualifications of candidates of certain races and a certain gender.
52% : And when, as in Biden's case, people of certain races are excluded from even being considered for the job, the affirmative action is a particularly egregious form of race discrimination.
48% : " It's true that rejecting a white or Asian candidate in favor of a less qualified black candidate to atone for "past wrongs" is a form of affirmative action.
47% : The motive for favoring someone due to race -- be it atoning for past wrongs, making a workforce "look like America," or something else -- has no bearing on whether the favoritism is affirmative action.
38% : Affirmative action is picking somebody not as well qualified for past wrongs.
31% : For example, Graham insists that setting aside a Supreme Court slot for a black female is not affirmative action.
26% : I'm not sure what Graham means by his statement that "affirmative action is picking somebody not as well qualified for past wrongs.
