Elaborating, she added: “Asian Americans ranked healthcare (88%), jobs and the economy (85%), inflation (83%), crime (85%), education (82%), the environment (75%) and gun control (73%) as ‘extremely important’ or ‘very important’ issues when deciding their votes in November.”
“Political parties need to cease their views that Asian Americans only care about crime, or only care about education-related issues, as this is clearly not the case,” she stressed.
The survey is a joint effort of the APIAVote, AAPI Data, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice. According to an NBC story, researchers for Asian Americans Advancing Justice polled over 1,610 registered Asian American voters across six of the largest Asian American ethnicities. The survey was conducted in four languages.
