Interesting aspect to the recent Civitas poll (pdf), as compared with last month’s poll.
In the March poll (pdf), voters were asked: "Do you think the state should pass a law banning smoking in all buildings open to the public, including bars and restaurants?" 61 percent of respondents replied: "yes".
In the April poll (linked above), voters were asked: "Do you support or oppose legislation allowing a restaurant, bar and tavern owner to decide their own smoking policy as long as the policy was clearly posted at the entrance to their business?" 70 percent said "yes".
I guess framing is everything in poll questions. In any case, property rights should trump electoral whim — no matter what voters and California transplants think.
