For nearly a hundred years, HBR has covered important issues across industries and countries and has earned a reputation as a dynamic and thought-provoking publication.
Described as “the eventification of an article,” The Big Idea was brought into play more than ten years ago as a way to start moving into the digital era, and also keep readers entertained and informed between the bi-monthly issues of the review. HBR provides access to The Big Idea on all channels, thus allowing readers to explore the current topic on their favorite digital platform.

Cuban Americans in Florida’s Miami-Dade County gave Republican candidate and incumbent president Donald Trump the largest number of votes the Republican Party has received from that group in 16 years, when George W. Bush was elected to a second term in 2004. While many were surprised at this result, some poll-watchers felt that it could have been seen coming for several reasons.
Many Cuban Americans have traditionally supported the Republicans due to their strong stance against Cuban leader Fidel Castro after Kennedy’s failed invasion at the Bay of Pigs in the early 1960s. In more recent times, just prior to leaving office in January 2016, Democratic president Barack Obama stopped enforcing the presidential discretion in the Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966 that had afforded Cubans privileged immigration status; that left thousands of Cuban immigrants hoping to reach America stranded in Central America and Mexico while feeling betrayed.
There are also current issues that had an impact on increasing the Cuban American vote for Republicans. The alleged acceptance of socialism by Democrats also left many Cuban Americans feeling more aligned with Republican ideals.
The end result was nearly 200,000 more Hispanic votes for the Republican candidate than in the previous election of 2016.
