With just days to go before the election, opponents of expanding the state smoking ban who have fended off adoption of that law for a year still face a daunting task in convincing voters to kill it.

Referred Law 12 asks voters to ratify or to turn down a law passed by the Legislature in 2009 that would extend the public smoking ban to bars, restaurants, liquor stores and casinos.

An Argus Leader/KELO-TV scientific poll this week mirrors past polls on the subject and continues to show widespread support for expanding the smoking ban.

Sixty-two percent of respondents said they will vote to extend the ban.

Thirty-five percent oppose it and only three percent are undecided.
