The vast majority of adults would support a ban on smoking in cars when children are passengers. That's according to a new survey from the University of Michigan Mott Children's Hospital.

82 percent of adult respondents said they'd support a ban in cars carrying kids. Among smokers, support was at 60 percent.

The poll also found three-quarters of adults favored a ban on smoking in homes where children have asthma or other lung disease.
