Most Cuban Americans living in the area of Miami-Dade (Florida) favor unrestricted travel to Cuba, according to a survey released on Monday.

The survey, conducted by the Florida International University (FIU) includes the opinions of 1,000 people and with a margin of error of 3.2 percent, shows that 55.2 percent favor these trips.

It also shows that 64 percent of people consulted want the application of regulations previous to 2004, when the government of President George W. Bush tightened its anti-Cuba policy.

The study funded by the Cuba Study Group and widely published today, found that support of the US blockade reached its lowest level since the start of these consultations in 1991.

Those in favor of an aggression against the Island were also outnumbered by those who want Havana-Washington diplomatic links to be re-established.

The survey is the first of its kind since the Democratic Party took over Congress, where several initiatives to ease measures against the Island before Congressional recess in August this year are expected to be discussed.

According to Director of Foreign Policy Studies of the Brookings Institution, Carlos Pascual, "people see the need to take a new course."

The pollster and the groups taking part in the survey plan to hold public and private debates in Washington to influence policymakers in this regard.
