Cuban-Americans Want to See Steps toward “Free Society” in Cuba

MIAMI – Most Cuban-Americans living in Miami-Dade County oppose the normalization of trade relations with Cuba “until solid steps are taken towards the democratization of the island” by President Raul Castro’s government, a new Inspire America Foundation poll shows.

Diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba were re-established in 2015 after a rupture of more than half a century, but 82 percent of respondents said they would link the process to a political opening in the island, while 13 percent favored having full relations.

Some 60 percent of Cuban-Americans in Miami-Dade County voted for Republican candidate Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 presidential election, while 31 percent voted for his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

Ninety-two percent of respondents opposed the Cuban government’s policy that withholds wages paid by U.S. companies to workers employed in Cuba.

The poll of 600 Cuban-Americans living in Miami-Dade County, conducted in Spanish and English by SurveyUSA between Nov. 29 and Dec. 11, found that 56 percent of respondents did not expect the recent death of Fidel Castro to “accelerate a transition toward democracy” in the country.

Eighty percent of the respondents were registered voters in Florida.
