in Uncategorized by

According to a new survey from Public Policy Polling, 53 percent of Floridians support ending the embargo on Cuba, with only 22 percent in support of continuing it. Independents (64/13) and Democrats (57/14) both strongly support ending the embargo and even Republicans (42/38) narrowly support ending it.

The US embargo on Cuba was imposed during the presidency of John F. Kennedy, with the confrontation between the United States and Cuba one of the world’s last Cold War-era disputes.

A study out in February showed that a majority of Americans were in favor of a change in policy toward Cuba.
