Poll Results on AsAm sentiment on college admission

[A] The College Admission Issue & 80-20
   You may personally be strongly against the current college admission policy. You may be anguished over our letting our youngsters take it on their chins during the college admission process.
   But do you know how other Asian Ams, besides your friends, feel about this situation?
   Do you know of a single elected AsAm official, or an AsAm civic organization or an AsAm professional org. that will speak out for you on this issue?
   Do you know any entity except for 80-20 that will find out if there is a way to get our voice heard?
   80-20 just finished a formal test poll. It found that even the "most liberal" Asian Am sector, and therefore the most likely opposition to 80-20's advocacy of a DIFFERENT admission policy, very strongly support filing a legal brief at the Supreme Court for a different college admission policy.
[B] 80-20's Poll
   80-20 polled 1,000 Asian Ams who are associated with our universities i.e. those with email addresses ending in ".edu". It asked them if they agree or oppose 80-20's intention to advocate a race neutral and merit-based college admission policy at the supreme court. Here's the poll.

   "Kindly please respond to this poll. 80-20 needs to know the sentiment of 
our members, who have apparent association with a university, towards 80-20's decision to file a "friend 
of the court" legal brief with the Supreme Court arguing for a merit-based and race 
neutral college admission policy. That is, based on an applicant's current scholastic 
achievement and evaluated future potential only. You response is absolutely confidential.
