The Miami Herald reports:

 In a unprecedented shift in attitude that could affect Cuba policy
for the incoming administration of Barack Obama, more than one out of
every two Miami-Dade Cuban Americans think the U.S. trade embargo
against Cuba should end, according to a new poll released Tuesday.According
to the poll, conducted by Florida International University's Institute
for Public Opinion Research and funded by the Washington-basked
Brookings Institution and Cuba Study Group, 55 percent favor
discontinuing the trade embargo imposed in 1962 against the island
nation. Sixty-five percent of those polled also favor reestablishing
diplomatic relations with Cuba....Beginning in 1997, results showed a gradual decrease of support for
maintaining the embargo. But this year's poll is the first that shows a
majority of those surveyed favor lifting it. In 2007, 42 percent of
those queried were in favor of ending the trade ban.
