Support for Cuban embargo declining among exiles

usa_cuba Today’s Miami Herald:
A Bendixen poll of Aug. 24th shows support for the embargo eroding, mainly among the younger generations. Overall there is no longer a clear consensus for maintaining the restrictions on trade.

While most of the older exiles maintain it is a necessary punishment for the Castro brothers, others doubt the benefits of the 47 year long policy and some maintain it has only helped strengthen the regime’s hold on the Cuban people, providing a convenient excuse for its deficiencies.

President Obama has said that the release of political dissidents are a prerequisite to lifting the embargo.
