Gallup published today a poll in which, a 60 percent majority of Americans favor reestablishing diplomatic ties with Cuba. Additionally, Gallup found 51 percent of Americans favor lifting the trade embargo on the country.

Interestingly enough, the poll seems to expose a divide among Republicans, with 47 percent opposed to ending the embargo, but 44 percent in favor. Among Democrats, 54 percent favor ending the embargo.

The fact that a solid majority support re-establishing U.S. diplomatic relations with Cuba -- and have consistently done so for the past decade -- suggests that Obama's first step in this direction was likely well-received by the American public.

Moves toward making it easier for all Americans to travel to Cuba will likely find majority support among the American public as well. Ending the trade embargo will be a tougher matter and likely a partisan battle."
