    Objectives

    We explored differences in support for smoke-free policies among Southerners versus non-Southerners within a quota-based non-probability sample of adults in the United States.

    Methods

    In 2013, a cross-sectional online survey was conducted among 2501 adults assessing tobacco use, reactions to personal and public smoke-free policies, and persuasiveness of various message frames regarding smoke-free bar/restaurant policies.

    Results

    Southerners were no different from non-Southerners in support for most public and private smoke-free policies. The most effective pro-policy messages regarded hospitality, health, and individual rights/responsibilities; the most persuasive anti-policy messages involved individual rights/responsibilities. Compared to non-Southerners, Southerners rated pro-policy messages involving economic impact, religion/morality, and hospitality as more persuasive.

    Conclusions

    Factors other than public opinion accounting for lagging policy adoption must be explored.
