Early signs suggest voter skepticism of permitting affirmative action once again in California: 47% of likely voters object to Prop.

That’s a wider gap than the one seen in 1996, when voters approved a ban on affirmative action in the state 54% to 46%.

Most Democrats in 1996 voted in support of affirmative action, but nearly a third voted against it.

The UC Board of Regents formally endorsed a repeal of the ban on affirmative action in June, a radical departure from 1995 when its members voted to end its use in admissions.

That presaged the statewide revolt against affirmative action in 1996.
