Bloomy hardest hit.
Looks like Americans want to hang on to their Big Gulps.
A new survey finds that nearly three-quarters of Americans reject laws that would limit the sale of sugary soft drinks to 16 oz.
The Gallup poll found that 69 percent of adults are against such laws, while 30 percent are in favor of them. A majority of those polled were against such laws across party, income level and race.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s efforts to limit the sale of sugary soft drinks was stymied just before taking effect in March when a judge ruled the law was arbitrary. City Hall promised to fight the ruling.
