Korean American Voters Overwhelmingly Support Obama

Korea Daily, Posted: Aug 06, 2008

LOS ANGELES -- Korean American voters overwhelmingly back Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), reports the Korea Daily.
According to a recent poll of 510 Korean American voters conducted by the daily newspaper and its affiliated radio station, Radio JBS, 65 percent of those surveyed support Democratic candidate as their next
President. Support for his counterpart hinged on a mere 15percent. Sen. Obama's Korean American supporters thought he would promote better economic and immigration policies and, as a younger candidate, would be a more competent President. Also, over half of the respondents expected Obama to be better qualified for advancing stagnant Korea-U.S relations. Only 21 percent of Korean voters said that they expected that from McCain. The majority (55%) of those polled said that they are unconcerned that Obama is African American.
