Asian Americans are the fastest-growing group of the nation’s eligible voters, a study shows. Six out of 10 Asians in the U.S. will be able to vote in November’s presidential election. Of those voters, 35 percent live in California.
Asian registered voters lean more Democratic than Republican, the study shows. But a 2018 survey by research organization AAPI Data found that party identification differs by origin groups: 46 percent of Vietnamese survey participants favor President Donald Trump, the highest percentage among all groups.
Experts see the potential for the Asian American and Pacific Islander voter bloc to make an impact in November, but say more outreach is necessary.
