One of my friends is the most politically active American (let alone Asian American) I know – Sophia (and her husband) recently launch their website, Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders for Hillary ’08 (www.aapiforhillary.com):
Although Asian Americans make up about 5% of the U.S. population, in California, Asian Americans make up 12%. If you’ve been following the political commentary on Super Tuesday in California, Hillary Clinton won the Asian American vote 75% to Barack Obama’s 25% – leading many pundits to ask, Does Obama Have an Asian Problem?
The big test for Clinton is in the next week and a half with the Texas and Ohio primary – where Asian Americans constitutes 3.6% of Texas and 1.7% of Ohio.
I’ve mentioned a past event for Asian Americans for Obama already, so thought I’d let others know about a blog for Hillary. If there are any Asian Americans for John McCain sites or blogs out there, let me know.
