Like the fresher air in North Carolina's restaurants and bars? If you do, you're not alone.

A new poll from left leaning Public Policy Polling shows the vast majority of North Carolina voters like the new ban on smoking in the state's restaurants and bars almost six months after it went into effect.

PPP found 68 percent of voters say they support the new measure with only 24 percent opposed.

The issue doesn't seem to divide Democrats and Republicans. PPP found 75 percent of Democrats, 67 percent of independents, and 60 percent of Republican say they like the ban now that they've seen it implemented.
