Most Cuban-Americans in Miami support rapprochement with Cuba

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) — According to a Florida International University (FIU) survey conducted in Miami-Dade County, the majority of Cuban-Americans support rapprochement with Cuba, Prensa Latina reported.

The study, which is the first of its kind since the beginning of the Trump administration, revealed that 80 percent of those surveyed are of the opinion that the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the island is a failed policy, as former president Barack Obama acknowledged.

The polls also revealed that 63 percent of Cubans in Miami-Dade support the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two nations and 68 percent of those polled are in favour of the expansion and maintenance of trade relations with Cuba by US companies.

Similarly, three-quarters of those surveyed approve the sale of medicines to Cuba and 57 percent favour unrestricted travel for all Americans, who so far cannot visit the Caribbean nation as tourists.

The FIU study showed that support for rapprochement between the two governments is more common among younger generations of Cuban-Americans, and that at election time the sample consulted does not have policies regarding Cuba among its priorities.

  1. LOL Wouldn’t you love to see how the questions were posed and who was queried. I wonder why among my acquaintances numbering several people of Cuban descent not a single one of them favors the above. Strange. FIU? Why is it most surveys done by universities seem to always go against the grain? Could it be the propaganda machine in motion?

  2. ACN is a Cuban News Agency (Propaganda). I would be willing to bet after reading a bit about this agency that the pole was probably taken in Cuba. LOL.
