More conservative Republicans support restoration of US-Cuba relations
Diplomatic support to US relations with Cuba has increased in almost all party groups since January, threw the last survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted from 14 to 20 July 2015.
Currently, 56% of Republicans say they approve restoration of US-Cuba relations, an increase of 16 points since the beginning of the year. Most Democrats (83%) and independents (75%) are in favor of the renewal of diplomatic relations with Cuba.
Support for lifting the embargo on Cuba has seen a similar increase. Some of the most dramatic changes have come from conservative Republicans, says the report of the survey of 2002 adults.
55% of conservative Republicans say they favor the end of the trade embargo. In January, only 40% supported that the United States lifted its trade embargo against the island. In addition, 52% of conservative Republicans now say they approve restoration of diplomatic relations between US and Cuba, more than 19 points since January.
