Majority Smoking BanMajority Smoking Ban, Most Americans, according to the results of a Gallup poll, support the smoking ban. According to the telephone survey July 7 to 10, 59 percent of Americans favor a ban on smoking in public places. This issue was first raised in 2001 when only 39 percent were in favor. The increase is indicative of rising anti-US sentiments in the U.S. snuff

“Most Americans support the concept of a complete ban on smoking in all public places, marking a significant change from four years ago, when Gallup last measured attitude,” said pollster who surveyed people Princeton, New Jersey, was quoted by Reuters.

However, only 19 percent of respondents favor making smoking illegal in the U.S. “Relatively few Americans support the idea of?? All smokers in the country illegally, perhaps partly in recognition of the practical difficulties in implementing the ban,” said pollster.

The survey also found that 22 percent of adults in the U.S. smoked cigarettes in the previous week, a figure that has remained constant over the past five years.

The survey results are based on a random sample of 1,016 participants aged 18 years living in 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
