A new survey from Switchfly, a travel industry analysis group, found
that 42% of men expressed a desire to go to Cuba, compared with just 32%

island nation, compared with 37% of residents in the South and 38% in
The poll was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on
behalf of Switchfly from September 14-16, 2015, among 2,031 adults, 690
of whom would ever go to Cuba.
