Mixed Opinion

At 51 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of the Supreme Court's Voting Rights Act decision, including 71 percent of African-Americans, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll. Americans approved of the decision giving gay couples the same federal benefits enjoyed by other married couples by 56-41 percent.
