This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the role of the United States government in the regulation of cigarettes and other tobacco products. Respondents were asked whether they favored or opposed an increased role for government in reducing cigarette smoking in the United States. Those queried were also asked whether they supported the proposed blanket settlement between tobacco companies and the states that were suing them that would protect tobacco companies from all future lawsuits. In addition, respondents were asked to give their opinions on the role of the Clinton adminstration in the tobacco settlement talks, federal regulation of the use of nicotine in cigarettes, and whether it should be illegal for adults to purchase cigarettes. The results of the poll were announced on the ABC television program "Nightline." Background information on respondents includes age and sex.
