National Survey of 1,000 Adults

Conducted May 6-May 7, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports

1* Do you favor or oppose a law where you live that would ban the sale of any cup or bottle of a sugary drink larger than 16 ounces?

2* Would a ban on the sale of sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces lead to a significant improvement in public health? Or would it basically have no impact?

3*  Should the government ban the sale of all sugary drinks?

4* Does the government have the legal authority to prevent people from buying sugary drinks?

5* Think for a moment about government regulation of the foods we eat. Is there too much government regulation of the food we eat, not enough regulation of the food we eat, or about the right amount of regulation?
