Poll: Plurality say the US should not get involved following protests in Cuba

A plurality of voters said the U.S. should not get involved following the protests in Cuba, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

Thirty-eight percent of registered voters in the July 20-21 survey said the U.S. shouldn't get involved while 32 percent said the nation should donate COVID-19 vaccines to the Cuban people.

Twenty-four percent of respondents said the U.S. should impose sanctions on Cuba's communist government and communist party officials.

Twenty-two percent said the U.S. should loosed restrictions on remittances and 12 percent said the trade embargo should be lifted.

Eleven percent of voters said the U.S. should remove Cuba's designation as a "state sponsor of terrorism." 

The survey comes as President Biden weighs allowing remittances to Cuba, as well as the reestablishment of consular services. 

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 949 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 3.18 percentage points.
