New Atlantic Council Poll To Be Launched Shows Majority Support Across Political Parties​

Tennessee voters aren’t necessarily big fans of the Obama administration’s policies. But is the Cuba policy an exception? With Tennessee Senator Bob Corker at the helm of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the state holds significant sway over US foreign policy and the future of the US-Cuba relationship. How can Tennesseans benefit from greater opening with Cuba? What are the business opportunities?


Join the Atlantic Council for the Nashville release of a poll of heartland voters in Tennessee, Indiana, Iowa, and Ohio — states critical to the president election, with key congressional delegations, or both — on what they think of US-Cuba policy.
