Question Are there many people in the US for the embargo against cuba?

I was there two years ago and it seems the embargo is only hurting the poor.

I don't think anyone outside of cigar aficionados and Cuban-Americans really care.

I think the embargo is stupid. The problem is that no one really cares. It would be nice to help out the Cubans and also nice for us to go there without flying to Canada or Mexico first.

And yet we sanction Iran like that's really going to stop them from enriching their own uranium.

The embargo should have been lifted decades ago when the "Red Menace" died with the cold war.
