Does the lingering smell of cigarette smoke bother you?

What a comeback
The poll looks like it has a few days left though.Right now this has the 2nd highest number of votes made out of the 6 polls listed.Only 7 votes behind the "Lottery" poll.Also the "Smoking" poll is 117 votes higher than the "Hockey" poll,which is pretty hard to do in Canada.
The legislature in my province will be voting fairly soon on banning smoking in cars (with children present).By the looks of it the gov. has lumped it together with a ban on using hand held cell phones while driving.(cowards) There were 3 newspaper polls on the smoking part,all which were about 85% against legislation.This,of course, did not suit the local ratz unit (MANTRA) and one "columnist" particularly.(He's now claiming that he goaded/forced the gov. into this.) MANTRA commissioned their own poll which naturally came up with the desired result.However they had to use almost all of the reponses to match the newpaper poll results.The questions were pretty much as I wrote in my first post above.There wasn't a possible negative response,just varying positives.I was one of the people polled.At any rate,the newspaper polls should provide some "ammo" when I write the members of the legislature.At the very least these polls will not count in MANTRA's "pile".It's always worthwhile to vote in polls.
