This survey was done by the Institute for Public Opinion Research of Florida International University. 800 randomly selected Cuban-American respondents were polled in Miami-Dade County, Florida. 500 interviews were done to land-line phones and 300 to cell phones. The survey was done in Spanish and English with all bilingual interviewers. Interviews were completed on December 1, 2008. The margin of error for the overall poll is plus or minus 3.6%.

The results reported here are from the tabulations of single response questions. Results from questions involving multiple responses and coding of open-end responses will be released on December 8, 2008 at Florida International University.

This 2008 Cuba/US Transition Poll has some questions that have been tracked over the years in the FIU Cuba Poll. To compare results from these questions with past FIU Cuba Polls, see http://www.fiu.edu/~ipor/cuba8/ , and in particular http://www.fiu.edu/~ipor/cuba8/CubaComp.htm .

The 2008 Cuba/US Transition Poll was funded by the Brookings Institution and the Cuba Study Group.
