Americans Favor Re-Establishing Ties With Cuba
A new Gallup poll shows that two-thirds of American favor renewing diplomatic ties with Cuba. This isn’t particularly surprising:
Over the past 32 years, a majority of Americans have consistently said they support establishing diplomatic ties with Cuba, with the exception of one poll conducted in 1996.
So, there is longstanding, overwhelming, bipartisan support for changing our Cuba policy. Yet, our policy remains steadfast.
This is a classic case of “Who cares more?” The Cuban lobby, while tiny, is powerful and motivated on this issue. The two-thirds who want to see the policy change? Not so much.
