    Voted. The poll doesn't give the total number of voters which is important, but what the heck!

    I don't think we're making an impact.

    My guess is that most people who vote don't know what an e cigarette is. They see cigarette and vote. Most people probably have no idea that e cigarettes are astonishingly successful at getting people off tobacco. I have thought from the beginning that calling them e cigarettes was a mistake. I understand the reasoning for the name but in the end I think it does more harm than good.

    I think that the biggest public disservice done with vaping was to ban promoting them as a way to get off tobacco. Most people don't look beyond the headlines because they don't smoke and don't care about smoking. The public takes the nonsense the media publishes hook line and sinker.

    Great point. Perhaps a rebranding is required. Over a decade of anti-smoking/anti-tobacco campaigns has put a taint in the word "cigarette" for the average person.

    Voted but it won't matter. As stated already, people see the word 'cigarette' and their minds are made up. It's that simple. The human psyche is a strange thing.

    Voted. It's weird how it shows 33% until now though...seeing that above posters also voted.
