Affirmative Action in Trouble in Michigan

In a recent poll done by SurveyUSA the life of Affirmative Action in Michigan may be in its last days.

Of those being questioned 36% said they would vote for a ballot initiative that would prohibit state entities, including colleges and universities, from using race for contracts, recruitment, enrollment etc. Only 29% said they would vote no on the ballot question. 35% of those in the survey were undecided.

Those numbers are down from a survey conducted in June, but the opponents have to be concerned that a quarter of Democrats support the initiative as do a third of African Americans. 50% of Republicans support the question, but according to SurveyUSA 55% of those in the survey are "unfamiliar" with initiative that will be on the ballot in November.
