Majority of Asian Americans Likely to Vote

Sajaforum.org, Posted: Oct 29, 2008

Sixty-seven percent of Asian Americans who are citizens are considered likely voters, with Indians just above the norm (68 percent), following Japanese (81 percent), Koreans (73 percent) and Filipinos (70 percent), and ahead of Chinese (62 percent), according to The National Asian American Survey (NAAS) findings, reports Sajaforum.org.

Indian Americans are the strongest supporters of Barack Obama, preferring him by 62 percent to just 12 percent who favor John McCain, with 25 percent still undecided. Nationally, 53 percent of Indian Americans favor Obama.

On the other end of the spectrum, in California were Vietnamese Americans who favor McCain by 52 percent to 21 percent who dont. Asian Americans in California favor Obama by 42 percent to 24 percent, who are opposed to him.

Those who think of Asians as socially conservative would be surprised to find that 57 percent oppose a ban on same-sex marriage.

NAAS has been described as the most comprehensive survey of Asian American political views ever, with 4,394 people surveyed by phone between Aug. 18 and Sept. 26.
