Two Cuba Polls, One Huge Contradiction

Tuesday, July 21, 2015
This morning, the Associated Press released a poll showing that a minority 48% of Americans believe that sanctions towards Cuba should be decreased or removed entirely.

Of the 48% -- 29% believe sanctions should be decreased and only 19% believe they should be removed entirely.

Just a few hours later, Pew released a poll purporting that 72% of Americans support ending the trade embargo entirely.


For the mathematically challenged, that's a 53-point discrepancy between both polls.

There's no margin of error that covers that.

Yet, unfortunately, the Obama Administration and its allies insist on peddling anecdotes, theories and (contradictory) polls to support their Cuba policy -- for the facts (here and here) are too sobering.
