Speaking of polls

Here’s a Fox News poll conducted by Opinion Dynamics with this result: 59 percent of Americans (registered voters) favor ending the Cuba embargo, 30 percent are opposed, 11 percent are unsure. The question was: “Do you think it’s time for the United States to end its embargo and move toward normal diplomatic and trade relations, or do you think continued embargo is the best way to treat Cuba?”

And for sociologist Haroldo Dilla, the recent poll by Cuba Democracy Public Advocacy – and the way its questions were phrased – brought back memories of polling in Cuba under the Communist Party’s supervision. His essay at CubaEncuentro is here.
