In his blog that appears on “Huffington Post,” Professor Bennett Gershman explores the referendum and asks if the answer is as simple as it may first appear to be.
“However, a fair reading of the referendum results shows clearly that the headlines proclaiming that a majority of Puerto Ricans support statehood are misleading and erroneous, and certainly promote considerable cynicism regarding Puerto Rico’s political process,” writes Prof. Gershman.
