who won cigarette smokers?


I can't seem to find a way to look at it that would lead me to believe Obama didn't win smokers, as they are disproportionately lower-income.  which means they vote at a lower clip too - which makes them easy targets for unfair taxation.

A large amount of them tend to be white working class voters.

blacks & whites are about the same.  Native Americans smoke at a much higher clip and Asians much lower (particularly Asian women).  don't really recall about Hispanics, I think it's a few points lower than blacks/whites.

I think we're probably talking about the same stats, then.

It actually surprises me that Asian women smoke at such low rates.  I see a lot of young Asian women (college-aged) smoking in Seattle, I assume it's a weight control thing.  Not claiming that's a better sample, but I'm surprised

I was actually just about to say the opposite.  The college I went to (Stony Brook University) was about 25-30% or so Asian, and a bit higher than that of students who dormed (since most of the commuters were from Central Suffolk) and very few Asian women smoked.
