Obama Wins Asian Vote Big

November 8, 2012
National Journal recently delved into the growing impact and political clout of Asian-Americans, especially in some key presidential swing states, including Virginia and Nevada. Strategists for both political parties see the growing community, which is still only a fraction of the national electorate, as a critical swing voter bloc in the future. Asian-Americans were the nation's fastest-growing ethnic group between 2000 and 2010, according to the census. In 2012, Asian-Americans sided decidedly with the Democrats. In fact, Obama garnered a higher percentage of the Asian vote than he did among Latinos (71 percent). It is only the second time since 1992 that Asians voted more Democratic than Hispanics. The other race was in 2004, when George Bush made a concerted push for the Latino vote. That year, 53 percent of Latinos voted for Democratic challenger John Kerry, and 56 percent of Asian-Americans backed him.
