In a new Cuban-American poll, by a ratio of more than 2-to-1, respondents support new sanctions against Cuba by President Donald Trump's administration since an alleged "sonic attack" on U.S. diplomats in Havana.

The survey, commissioned by Inspire America and conducted by Survey USA, was carried out Oct. 18 through Oct. 25 and polled Cuban-Americans living in Miami-Dade County. Some 70 percent of respondents supported reducing the number in American diplomats and expelling Cuban diplomats in the U.S.

What's more, 26 percent of respondents said the decision was not stern enough. The poll also found that respondents favor returning the Cuban government to the list of state-sponsored terrorists by a 5-3 margin, and oppose the U.S.-Cuba cultural exchange program in its present form by a 2-1 margin.

U.S. officials have charged that that as many as 50 mysterious acoustic attacks harmed U.S. diplomats in Havana, sickening at least 22 American officials and family members, CNN reported.

The State Department has since ordered nonessential diplomats and families out of Cuba, per CNN. The Trump administration also ordered Cuban diplomats expelled in protest of Cuba's failure to protect staff at the U.S. embassy in Havana from a mysterious attack, Reuters said.

American diplomats have been treated for ear complaints, hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, balance problems, visual complaints, headaches, fatigue, cognitive issues, and difficulty sleeping, a senior U.S. official told CNN. Authorities, though, have not been able to identify the type of device used in the alleged attack accept that it was sophisticated.

New regulations by the Trump administration regarding Cuba that went into effect this week banned any American direct financial transactions with 180 entities tied to the Cuban military, and intelligence and security services, the Miami Herald reported.

The updated rules also strengthened restrictions on three categories of permissible travel to Cuba while regulations regarding nine other allowed travel categories, including Cuban Americans' family visits and humanitarian trips, remain unchanged, the Herald said.
