When the vaping industry and its confederates launched a significant push to dissuade President Donald Trump from embargoing flavored e-cigarettes this fall, they pointed to a forthwith identified demographic group, known as vaping voters. Battleground State polling conveyed for the industry by one of the president’s entrusted campaign pollsters expressed an embargo could tip the balance against the president. 96% of vapers have said that they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who wanted to embargo flavored e-cigarettes. Most serious public-opinion pollsters would scoff at the survey, that polled only the most performed vapers off a list given by an industry group. These numbers stand in contradict to a new Morning Consult poll that placed that a ban on flavored e-cigarettes is extensively widespread amid the whole electorate. Still, the industry-sponsored polling confirmed believing enough to Trump, who is insistent by low job-approval ratings.
Paul Blair, who is the director of strategic initiatives at Americans for Tax Reform, has stated that this may be an electorate that is 5 or 6 or 7 percent of the American adult public. He also added that a conservative interest group that has long fought for lower taxes and fewer regulations on electronic cigarettes. One reason for the inconsistent signals from the White House in recent months, Trump is blamed between the pro-flavor-ban forces, which includes some public-health advocates and his wife, Melania, who is troubled reportedly by the growth in young vaping and nicotine addiction. A constellation of orthodox groups is forming a small-government case against the ban. There is nothing new about interest groups applying polls to try to lure decision-makers.
Tyler Sinclair, the vice president of Morning Consult, mentioned that the recent flow of news stories about illnesses and death ascribed to vaping for the overall public support for a flavor embargo. Among the 28 percent of voters who said that they had used an electronic cigarette in the past, one-third of them support the blockade on flavored vaping products, while the other opposed the ban.
