Miami Cubans Divided over Relations between U.S. and Cuba

MIAMI – Miami’s large Cuban-American community is divided over the process of normalizing diplomatic relations between Washington and Havana, according to a survey cited Monday by The Miami Herald.

Some 41 percent of Cuban-American voters consulted said they were in favor of normalization, while 52 percent were opposed.

That division particularly reflected the respondents’ age and the year they came to the United States, since Cubans in the younger 18-35 age group supported by a margin of 61 percent to 35 percent the efforts made by the Barack Obama administration since December 2014 to resume diplomatic relations with the island.

Among those 75 years and older, the figures are inverted, with 64 percent against and 30 percent in favor.

The 59 percent of voters of Cuban origin who immigrated to the U.S. after 1992 said they supported this restoration of political ties, while 71 percent of those who came to this country before 1980 were against it.

The study, taken by Florida International University associate politics professor Dario Moreno from among 400 eligible Cuban-American voters in Miami-Dade County between April 21-23, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.

This shift in political leanings is reflected in the current political campaign, in which likely Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton are running very close in voter preference among this influential community.

While 37 percent of respondents say they support the real estate magnate, the former first lady is within “striking distance” with 31 percent in her favor.

Moreno noted that the pro-Trump figure is “the lowest in history that any potential Republican candidate polls among this traditionally loyal demographic.”
