While I can see your logic, anecdotally, Cubans of all types fled due to a lack of rights, freedoms, resources, and Precious Moments A Little Grey Hare shirt possibility.You couldn’t be more wrong. I’m Cuban, my whole family votes republican. We’re far from upper class either here and neither were we in cuba. The reason they vote Republican is because they feel democratic presidents are weak on foreign policy, especially when it comes to Cuba. They especially feel so now that Biden hasn’t intervened in the situation. They keep mentioning to me how if Trump was president he would intervene without a second thought. So your assertion is completely wrong. Cubans vote republican because they were pushed out of their country by political persecutions and economic hardships. Even though they live here they still love Cuba and want to see it be free one day. They belive the best chance that has of happening is with a republican president. And this isnt just my family. I know plenty of Cuban families and they are all in the same boat as mine. Btw the upper class in cuba is the communist regime, only reason they leave the country is to go on an expensive vacation while everyone else starves.My parents, extended family, family friends and I (an infant) all fled in the middle of the night on a makeshift raft built by my father with spare parts from a tire shop.Not a one of us, or others we knew, belonged to any truly privelaged class. My father had the knowledge (didn’t even finish middle school) and resources (access to spare tubing) while everyone else on that raft had the “courage” (read desperation) to gtfo even if it meant dying at sea.I can only speak for myself from my experience among different generations of Cubans. Anecdotally, those who side with Republicans do so because they, and/or their parents, still remember the last time someone promised them economic equality.With that being said, a good portion of Cubans who fled early in Fidel’s reign certainly fit in with your logic. However, that’s not all of them. Especially not those who came in the late 80s-mid 90s. At least not in my experience. It’s complicated.

America wouldn’t intervene even if we had a republican president. They would only intervene if either A) Americans were killed or B) They get something out of it. Intervening would become a Precious Moments A Little Grey Hare shirt considering that there are Cubans that are still loyal to the Communist Regime.No the hard right shift was far more recent. Consider that Hillary beat Trump among Miami Cubans in 2016! Also that Obama easily won Miami-Dade County and that the city and county have had many Democrat mayors.After 2016, conservative media managed to polarize the electorate and create a new Red Scare in Miami. Now my erstwhile level-headed relatives spew conspiracy theories about Bill Gates genetically altering our mosquitoes to infect the populace with Marxist-Leninist prions or something.Thank you for validating what I remembered learning on the campaign trail as a campaign manager for one of my politicians in Florida. I had always wondered if that was true (my candidate ran before the Trump era, and was running as a democrat). The strange irony at the time was that my candidate was actually half Cuban and some felt they would still lose that vote because they ran as a democrat. Turns out they were right but that whole thing stuck with me.My “political spidey senses” tell me this feeling Cubans have towards democrats have lasted a couple generations.. perhaps back to Kennedy’s presidency? I’ll just say that I very much support the Cuban people here and in 2021.. equipment, prices, healthcare and more should all be much better and accessible for them than it currently is. Change needs to absolutely happen now.
