Webcast: US-Cuba: What is American Public Opinion Today?
Conducted by the top bipartisan polling team of Paul Maslin and Glen Bolger, this poll provides new insight into US attitudes regarding individual strands of the Cuba embargo.
Many observers have signaled that 2014 could mark a unique moment of opportunity and inflection for the Obama administration and its ability to act on Cuba. Changing demographics and new stakeholders could create an increasingly bipartisan coalition that supports meaningful changes in our relationship with Cuba. This poll attempts to quantify these shifts in US politics.
Maslin and Bolger will present the findings of the 1000 person national poll plus oversamples from New Jersey, Florida, and national Hispanics. CNN super-analysts Paul Begala and Alex Castellanos will provide expert interpretation and contextualize how polling results influence policy. Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) will open the session, speaking about the importance of engagement and why this may be the moment for change.
