The 2014 FIU Cuba Poll


Jorge Duany, Director of the Cuban Research Institute at Florida International University, has shared with us this timely information: a report on the findings of the 2014 FIU Cuba Poll (2014 FIU Cuba Poll Report.pdf). The FIU Cuba Poll has become a standard reference on the public opinions and demographic profile of Cuban immigrants and their descendants in the United States. See full description and survey in the link below:

Description: For more than two decades, FIU professors Guillermo J. Grenier and Hugh Gladwin have carefully tracked the opinions of the Cuban-American community in South Florida. Their ongoing poll was designed to reliably measure the views of Cuban Americans on U.S. policy options toward Cuba. The consistency of some of the survey responses, as well as the shift in others, provides the most complete picture of Cuban-American political attitudes over time. [. . .]

The poll’s findings have circulated widely, appearing in wire services, major newspapers, and television news, as well as in academic analyses of the political ideology and behavior of Cuban Americans. Scholars and journalists have extensively cited the FIU Cuba Poll as solid evidence of the generational and ideological shifts among Cuban Americans and their impact on U.S. policy toward Cuba. The survey data have been mined to document and analyze Cuban Americans’ attitudes toward maintaining the U.S. trade embargo of Cuba, re-establishing diplomatic relations, negotiating with the Cuban government, supporting human rights on the island, traveling and sending remittances to family members still in Cuba, and other policies. In addition, the 2014 FIU Cuba Poll included questions on several timely issues, such as the impact of Raúl Castro’s economic reforms, the development of small private businesses on the island, Cuba’s new migration and travel law, and the respondents’ voting preferences in the last presidential elections.
