MIAMI, Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspire America Foundation and America TeVe show the relevant results of the first survey conducted among Cuban Americans voters in Florida following the death of dictator Fidel Castro and the election victory of Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.
The study was done by Survey USA, one of the most prestigious polling organizations in the United States, and explores the opinion of these voters on issues vital for Southern Florida and Cuba such as the relations between Washington and Havana, the validity of the law of Cuban adjustment Cuban and human rights on the island among others.
Starting with a balanced universe of 600 persons that were interviewed, the survey explores in an incisive and explicit manner the aspects that other polls have never touched with sensitive complexity after the restoration of relations between the United States and Cuba from late 2014.
As per the poll:
- From 478 registered Cuban-Americans voters who were interviewed about the presidential election, 60% voted for Donald Trump; while 31% voted for the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. In this particular, the poll had a margin of error of +/-4.5%.
- Cuban-Americans considered unfair that Raul Castro's Government stays with 92% of the salary that American companies pay and/or pay their employees on the island.
- In a ratio of 6 to 1, the Cuban Americans considered that, after the death of Fidel Castro, the United States must cease all commercial openings with Raul Castro's government until solid steps are taken towards the democratization of the island.
- The majority of Cuban-Americans considered the Cuban Adjustment Act should be amended to avoid being violated or abused by Cubans who arrive from the island claiming political persecution, taking benefits prescribed by the Act and then traveling to Cuba under normal circumstances without fear of reprisal.
Survey USA is a non-partisan pollster, founded in 1990 and headquartered in New Jersey, with presence in 50 States in the nation. Their services are usually requested by 19 of the 25 major American communication companies which rely on their scientific judgment on issues related to media, the Government, the private sector and the public. Its position is unique in the research of public opinion in all the levels.
Both the Inspire America Foundation and America TeVe wanted to expand the spectrum of opinion among Cuban Americans on issues that concern them daily. We hope that its results will contribute to enrich the political discourse in the context of relations between Cuba and the United States as well as in the internal context of our community.
Results of the poll will be available on Tuesday, December 13th.
