Are Cuban-Americans Red or Blue?

It is easy to be confused: local Spanish language radio can't get enough of Castro. Talk show hosts run political candidates through the mill like guayabera through the roller bars of an old washer, wringing every last drop of fealty to anti-Castro passions.

Eye on Miami (winner of Best Blog by the New Times, 2008) explores whether Cubans will vote blue in the upcoming elections.
