Poll: Most back smoking ban (ELIAS GROLL, 7/15/11, Politico)

For the first time, a majority of Americans now support government efforts to snuff out smoking in all public places, according to a new poll released by Gallup on Friday.

Gallup found that 59 percent of Americans say they back a ban, which is the first time a majority has endorsed the idea since the polling outfit began asking the question in 2001. At that time, no more than 39 percent favored banning smoking in public places.
