Regardless of race

Americans across racial lines said they disapproved of the decision, according to the survey from ABC News and the Washington Post. In the ruling, the court struck down a formula used to determine which parts of the nation were subject to pre-screening by the federal government before making any changes to election laws.

According to the survey, a majority — 51 percent — said they disapproved of the ruling. Among African Americans, more than seven in 10 said they did not agree with the high court's findings. Whites disapproved at a 48-33 percent clip, while a full half of Hispanics said they were against the ruling.
