Date:1/30/2008

Support is widespread and strong throughout Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey released today by ClearWay Minnesota(SM) found that 76 percent of Minnesotans support the statewide smoke-free law, with 44 percent indicating strong support. The survey also provides evidence of strong support among all leading demographics, including geography, political and ideological affiliation, income, age and gender. The survey was conducted by Minneapolis research firm Decision Resources, Ltd.

"The results of this survey demonstrate how quickly the smoke-free law has been embraced by all Minnesotans," said David Willoughby, Chief Executive Officer of ClearWay Minnesota. "We can now add the love of fresh indoor air to the list of things that define us as Minnesotans."

Other key findings from the survey include:

-- Support for the smoke-free law has increased by 7 percent since a

similar survey was taken prior to the law's passage and implementation

in 2007.

-- Minnesota smokers are smoking less and thinking about quitting as a

result of the law.

-- 19 percent report smoking fewer cigarettes

-- 22 percent report that they are seriously considering quitting

-- A decisive majority of Minnesotans -- 82 percent -- view secondhand

smoke as a health hazard.

-- Strong majorities in every part of the state support a smoke-free law

(72 percent in the Twin Cities metro; 80 percent in the east metro; 75

percent in northern Minnesota; and 79 percent in southern Minnesota).

"I have been surveying Minnesotans on public policy issues for 24 years," said Bill Morris, President of Decision Resources. "These results are impressive because of the sheer intensity of support for the new law across all groups. Minnesotans have decisively made up their mind in favor of a smoke-free Minnesota."
