Fidel Castro's death has not changed many Americans' opinions about him, according to a poll from Rasmussen Reports.

Here are the results:

  • Very favorable: 2 percent.
  • Somewhat favorable: 8 percent.
  • Somewhat unfavorable: 26 percent.
  • Very unfavorable: 55 percent.
  • Not sure: 9 percent.

That same number view Cuba as either an enemy of the United States or somewhere in between an enemy and an ally:

  • Ally: 10 percent.
  • Enemy: 21 percent.
  • In between: 62 percent.
  • Not sure: 7 percent.

American opinions of Cuba have improved dramatically since 2007, when 42 percent of Americans thought of the country as an enemy, according to Rasmussen Reports.

When President Barack Obama announced a plan to normalize relations with Cuba in 2014, only 6 percent saw the country as an ally of the U.S., while 85 percent saw it as an enemy or somewhere in between.

President-elect Donald Trump threatened to "terminate" the agreement Obama sought in a tweet Monday.

"President-elect Trump is going to be looking for some movement in the right direction in order to have any sort of deal with Cuba," Reince Priebus, soon-to-be White House chief of staff in the Trump administration, told Fox News on Sunday.

"We've got to have a better deal."
