DC Smoking Ban Fan's Own Poll Shows Smoking Ban Bad for Business

Smoking ban proponent and DC Council member Jim Graham -- who Cicero points out below is leading the stupid charge to ban all-ages shows in DC -- has a poll up at his Council website which asks the following:
Smoke-free bars in the District: are you more or less likely to go out now?
The results show respondents are seven times less likely to go out in DC because of the smoking ban. (Full disclosure: I voted once that I was less likely to go out.)

Neighboring Virginia, meanwhile, is again spinning its wheels toward a ban of its own.
