Poll: 53% of exiles liked concert.

Cuban-American support of Juanes' Cuba concert has almost doubled in the aftermath of the Sept. 20 event, according to the Miami Herald.

The paper, citing a Sept. 24-26 study of 400 exiles by Sergio Bendixen & Associates, found that 53% had a favorable opinion of the show, while 29% were against it.

The results are a stunning about-face from a previous Bendixen poll conducted Aug. 24 among 400 exiles showing 47% opposing the concert, while 27% were in favor.

'The support is logical," said Carlos Saladrigas, co-chairman of the Cuba Study Group, which commissioned both studies. "Cubans had fun and heard Juanes scream 'Cuba Libre!' in the middle of Plaza de la Revolution. He had courage."
