A majority of Americans support the restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba, and a majority supports the end of the embargo and travel restrictions to Cuba, according to the results of a survey released Tuesday by The Washington Post and ABC.

The survey found that support for President Obama is not much eroded after announcing the policy change towards the island, despite its low level of national approval. 64% agree to establish ties with the island, similar to 66% of a 2009 survey where government wondered the same thing.

68% support the end of embargo on Cuba (11 points more than in 2009) and 75% support lifting restrictions on travel (19 points more than five years ago).

Another poll consulted the opinion of Cuban Americans, conducted by Bendixen & Amandi International, showed the division before Obama's decision. 44% supported the gesture of the president, while 48% showed otherwise.

The survey, sponsored by El Nuevo Herald, The Miami Herald and Tampa Bay, generational differences found. 64% of US-born Cuban Americans support Obama's policy against 53% of Cuban immigrants who oppose.
