Courthouse News Service: Study: Asian Americans Are Fastest-Growing Segment of Electorate
Courthouse News Service – Out of all major racial and ethnic groups in the U.S., Asian Americans have become the fastest-growing demographic of eligible voters.
According to the Pew Research Center study, Asian Americans make up 4.7% of the U.S. electorate this year –a record high for that group. . .
Pew researchers found that ethnic origins of this diverse group of voters affects political party identification. Indian Americans, for example, are the most likely to be Democrats while Vietnamese Americans are much more likely than Asian American voters overall to identify as Republican.
Data from the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, or AALDEF, back up those findings. . .
