In an analysis by AAPI Data, it was found that AAPI voters lean towards the Democrats with a decided anti-Trump factor.
"About 56% of AAPI adult citizens had unfavorable opinions toward the President, compared to 33% who held a favorable view," reads the analysis. "Only one California AAPI group, Vietnamese Americans, who have long been the most Republican-leaning among AAPIs, were more likely to approve (46%) than disapprove (37%) of the President.
"Notably, 60 percent or more of Indian, Chinese, Hmong , and Japanese Americans disapproved of the President," the report points out.
The AAPI Data analysis broke down the data further per ethnicity. Not surprisingly, Harris had a high favorability rating among Indian Americans. The data also showed that she did not share the favorable impression among other AAPI communities.
Unlike Harris favored by Indian Americans, Yang was unable to gain similar support among Chinese Americans, which favored Biden.
Sanders enjoyed support in the Filipino, Vietnamese and Hmong American communities.
While it may appear that there is a strong anti-Trump vote and pro-Democrat vote among AAPI voter, the large number of uncommitted voters indicates that more outreach to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders by the various campaigns and by both major parties is needed.
