Image: Poll: Democrats Twice as Likely to Favor Drink Ban
A new poll conducted for The Hill shows that Democratic voters are more than twice as likely to favor New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ban on larger-sized sugary drinks.

Just 15 percent of Republicans polled favored the ban; 40 percent of Democrats said they were in favor of it.

An overwhelming majority of Republicans — 79 percent — were against the ban, with just 47 percent of Democrats opposed, according to The Hill.

Overall, 65 percent of voters opposed the ban. Just 25 percent favored the proposal. 

Bloomberg's plan calls for a ban on sugary drinks over 16 ounces. The backlash against the proposal has been swift, with many saying the government should stay out of such nanny-state legislating.

The poll was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research.
