MSNBC: Asian Americans Could Swing Outcome in Battleground States

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Last week, Pew Research Center released their study of “The Rise of Asian Americans.” MSNBC did a segment on the report and discuss the importance of the Asian vote. Although Asian American make up only 6% of the overall U.S. population, their numbers in a few battleground states  – especially in Nevada and Virgina – could help swing the vote for Obama or Romney. Given that Asian Americans generally lean Democratic, it’s no wonder that Obama has been paying a little bit more attentions to the Asian American community lately. In a future follow-up post, I’ll go into more of the details of the Pew report’s results on Asian Americans and their views on politics.
