Summary:
The Cuban Embargo has restricted economic, cultural and diplomatic ties between the United States and Cuba for 53 years. On December 17th, 2014, President Obama made a televised-speech on “normalizing relationship with Cuba,” instead of continuing an “outdated approach [that] has failed to advance our interests.” This study will examine and analyze the attitudes of Hispanics living in the United States’ towards the lifting of the Cuban Embargo. We are interested on the Hispanic population because they represent one of the largest and fastest-growing minority groups in the United States. We conducted telephone and online surveys of 500 Hispanics around the country. Our findings indicate that Hispanics have statistically significant different perspectives on lifting the Embargo, expanding trade and reestablishing diplomatic relations depending on their age, gender and other socio-demographic factors.
