Poll Confirms Growing Influence of Asian American Voters

Nguoi Viet , Posted: Jan 22, 2009

WESTMINSTER, Calif. -- The organization Asian Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote) hailed the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Funds (AALDEF) exit poll results as strong evidence of the growing strength of the Asian-American vote. The responses of nearly 17,000 Asian American voters in 11 states showed that they voted for Barack Obama by more than a 3-to-1 margin, and supported other Democratic candidates, making the difference in key contested states in the historic November 2008 presidential elections. The nonpartisan exit poll also found that 58 percent of Asian Americans were registered Democrats, while 26 percent were not enrolled in any political party, and 14 percent of Asian Americans were registered Republicans.
