Another poll shows North Carolinians support a smoking ban. This poll comes to us from PPP or Public Policy Polling. By most, it's considered a pretty even handed polling outfit. 67% approved of a smoking ban in restaurants and work places. In the meantime, the actual bill in the legislature keeps getting watered down. It exempts bars who only allow 21 year olds in and allows local governments to make the work place decisions.

Keep in mind only 461 people were interviewed for this survey which isn't a small sample necessarily but still something to keep in mind.

The poll also shows 58% approve of the tax break/incentive packages to lure in companies like Dell for jobs. BUT, 46% didn't approve of the Google $260 million package. Very interesting to say the least.

Word is appropriation subcommittee chairs will get their hands on preliminary House budget next week.
