Newsweek: Asian Voter Turnout Hit All-Time High in 2020 Presidential Race, Census Bureau Finds
Newsweek - More Asians voted in the 2020 presidential race than in any election in history, according to a new report released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. . .
The group played a role in Biden’s victory, according to exit polls conducted by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. The organization found Asian voters overwhelmingly supported Biden over Trump last November: 68 percent backed the Democratic nominee, while 29 percent supported Trump in his run for reelection. . .
“Asian Americans, especially new voters, were part of the record turnout of communities of color in the 2020 elections,” Margaret Fung, the fund’s executive director, said at the time. “Asian American voters played an important role in close races in several battleground states, and our voices must not be overlooked in the political process.”
