Gallup Poll - Majority Disapproves of New Law Regulating Tobacco..

June 22, 2009 - The public appears somewhat reluctant to back policies aimed at further reducing the prevalence of smoking. A slight majority disapproves of recent legislation that gives the federal government more power to regulate tobacco, and the vast majority opposes the most extreme anti-smoking policy of a total ban on smoking in the United States.

Survey Methods - results are based on telephone interviews with 1,011 national adults, aged 18 and older, conducted June 14-17, 2009. Interviews are conducted with respondents on land-line telephones (for respondents with a land-line telephone) and cellular phones (for respondents who are cell-phone only).
