CNN: Asian Americans on election

The other day, CNN’s Veronica De La Cruz asked Asian American voters what’s on their minds. To be honest, I didn’t see the point of her approach of going down to Chinatown using a Flip video camera to interview rather using a regular video camera. Maybe they were trying to go incognito so people wouldn’t be too intimidated that it was CNN.

In any case, before the piece was aired, I did see De La Cruz and an African American newscaster mentioning how the Asian American vote wasn’t getting much coverage, which is true. Asian Americans do make about 5% of the U.S. population, but this year, there are some swing states like Virginia and Nevada that Asian Americans CAN make a difference.
