Evidence of a Cuba Push-Poll

Monday, February 10, 2014
Last week, we noted how the The Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Center was preparing a push-poll on Cuba policy.

There's no clearer evidence that this is simply a political hatchet-job than the fact that U.S. Senators Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) have just published (on Monday) an op-ed in The Miami Herald citing figures from the Arsht poll.

(Comic relief: In the op-ed, the Senators from Arizona and Vermont lecture us about Florida politics.)

The Flake-Leahy op-ed must have been cued for days.

Yet, the Arsht poll is not scheduled for release until tomorrow (Tuesday)!

As we all know, Senators Flake and Leahy are Congress' leading advocates of unconditionally embracing Cuba's Castro dictatorship.

And obviously, The Arsht Center has colluded in this political hatchet-job in conjunction with Flake and Leahy.

Sloppy and shameless.
