Support for a complete smoking ban has nearly doubled since 2007 with now nearly a quarter of Americans favoring such a policy, according to Gallup. In addition, a majority (55 percent) support banning smoking in public places, up 15 points from 2007.
Some groups are more likely than others to support a complete ban on smoking. For instance, 39 percent of nonwhites support a ban while 15 percent of whites agree. Twenty-nine percent of those with no more than a high school diploma support a ban compared to 16 percent of college graduates. Democrats are also more likely to support a ban than Republicans, 26 to 19 percent.
