Few Favor Banning Neckties

A mayor in southern California is moving to ban neckties from workplace dress codes, citing studies that suggest the neckwear restricts blood flow to the brain. But Americans aren’t ready to say goodbye to the formalwear just yet and few think it’s the government’s place to make that decision.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 11% of American Adults favor banning neckties, while 65% are opposed. Another 24% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
