Contributing sentiments towards policy:

51% : The decision on affirmative action is likely to lead to another admissions fight that has been brewing in the background: legacies.
50% : While the call is likely to inflame those already expecting colleges to try to sidestep the ruling, affirmative action opponents made it clear they feel the law is on their side.
42% : The Supreme Court on Thursday struck down affirmative action in college admissions, declaring race cannot be a factor and forcing institutions of higher education to look for new ways to achieve diverse student bodies.
38% : Before the ruling, eight states already banned affirmative action in the pursuit of race-neutral practices, but advocates say the universities in those states have failed to recover the diversity numbers they had before the ban took place.
28% : California banned affirmative action in college admissions in 1996.
