On October 19, 1960, the U.S. placed a trade embargo on Cuba. Today, the 55-year-old embargo is an archaic relic of Cold War policy that hurts Americans and Cubans alike.

It’s time to get the facts straight.

 

97% OF CUBANS SAID NORMALIZING RELATIONS WOULD BE GOOD FOR THEIR COUNTRY.

81% OF U.S. VOTERS SUPPORT EXPANDING TRAVEL TO CUBA.

 

2015 marked the first time in 20 years that Americans viewed Cuba in a favorable light. 

 

Support for ending the travel ban and trade embargo has bipartisan support.

58 percent of Americans favor reestablishing diplomatic relations (while just 24% oppose).

81 percent of Americans support allowing all Americans to travel to Cuba, including large majorities of Republicans (71%), Democrats (90%) and Independents (80%).

SUPPORT EXTENDS ACROSS ALL AGE DEMOGRAPHICS. NOTABLY, SUPPORT IS LARGEST AMONG YOUNG AMERICANS.

Majorities Across Demographic Groups Favor Renewed Ties With Cuba
 
 

The trend has continued in 2016 across all demographics, including cuban-americans in Miami.
