A new Pew Research poll reinforces what we already know about the new Cuban policy. It’s popular in the U.S. and Latin America.
Three-quarters (73%) of the American public support the U.S. reestablishing diplomatic relations with Cuba, and a mean 77 percent of five Latin American countries surveyed agreed (Argentina (78%), Brazil (67%), Chile (79%), Mexico (54%) and Venezuela (77%).
But, the public in both hemispheres are skeptical that Cuba will embrace democracy over the next several years (43% of Americans more democratic, 47% of Latin America’s median five countries).
