U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, a Democrat from New York, last month introduced legislation that would require all states to adopt a texting ban for all drivers or face losing their federal highway grants.
Today, in a new national survey released from Nationwide Insurance, eight in 10 Americans say they support such a ban on texting while driving.
The issue has drawn a great deal of support and opposition from both lobbyists, citizens and even here at CNBC.
