Suppose a nominee for the US Supreme Court is qualified and has no ethical problems. Do you think US Senators would be justified or unjustified in voting against that nominee if they disagree with the nominee's stance on current issues such as abortion, gun control, or affirmative action?

Survey by MTV. Methodology: Conducted by PRRI, July 19 - August 3, 2017 and based on 2,023 online interviews. Sample: National adult age 15-24. The poll was fielded by GfK Knowledge Networks using its national YouthPulse panel. The initial sample drawn from the YouthPulse panel was adjusted using pre-stratification weights so that it approximates the overall population (15 to 24 year olds) in the US defined by the latest Current Population Survey. Next, a probability proportional to size sampling scheme was used to select a representative sample. Once assigned to the survey, panel participants received an email notification reminder on day four, seven and twelve of the field period. The YouthPulse panel is a nationally representative probability sample of teens and young adults age 15 to 24 years old. Panelists are recruited by randomly selecting residential addresses using a process called address-based sampling. Participants under the age of 18 were included in the panel following the receipt of parental consent. Unlike opt-in panels, households are not permitted to "self-select" into the panel; and are generally limited to how many surveys they can take within a given time period.

Let me read you two brief statements on affirmative action programs, and ask which one comes closer to your own point of view? A: Affirmative action programs are still needed to counteract the effects of discrimination against minorities, and are a good idea as long as there are no rigid quotas. B: Affirmative action programs have gone too far in favoring minorities, and should be phased out because they unfairly discriminate against whites. (If respondent makes a choice, ask:) Do you feel strongly about that, or not so strongly? (Source: NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, Mar, 2000)
