V2 said most smokers are Democrats. 

“Similar to our data, previous research has found that most smokers are Democrats,” Adam Kustin, vice president of marketing at V2, said in a statement. “Since vapers are former smokers, it only makes sense that the political group most likely to smoke is also the most likely to vape.”

V2 surveyed 600 people who use e-cigarettes in late March.
