The American Cancer Society said its latest poll shows "overwhelming support" for a statewide smoking ban in Wisconsin.

A survey of 500 Wisconsin voters showed more than two-thirds favoring the ban.

"We really are hoping that this will help show lawmakers that we don't want them to roll back any of the existing ordinances or to pass a weak state law that takes Wisconsin backwards when the rest of the country is going forwards," said Alison Prange of the ACS.
