Americans Would Vote Against NYC Soda Ban, Poll Says

 

The majority of Americans reject the idea of putting a limit on the size of soda drinks served in restaurants, according to a new Gallup poll.

Sixty-nine percent of respondents said they would vote against a limit on large sizes of sugary drinks in restaurants, while 30 percent were in favor of the proposal, the nationally representative poll found.

Democrats were more likely than Republicans to support the law. People who earn less than $24,000 yearly were more likely than higher-earners to back the limit, and whites were less likely than other racial groups to support the proposal.
