OKLAHOMA CITY - Supporters of legislation that would ban smoking in restaurants and most other public places say a new poll shows it has lots of public support.

Results of the poll were released Tuesday by representatives of the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association and other groups.

It shows 59 percent of those surveyed support a law that would eliminate smoking and smoking sections in public places. Only 37 percent oppose it.

And more than two-thirds support the right of customers and employees to breathe clean air. Smoking in Oklahoma restaurants is now restricted to separately ventilated rooms.
