A detailed analysis of a multilingual exit poll of 9,096 Asian American voters in 37 cities in 14 states and the District of Columbia has found that South Asians collectively, and in their diverse ethnic groups, voted overwhelmingly for Democrat President Barack Obama over Republican Gov. Mitt Romney in the November presidential election.
Although it is a small sampling, a poll conducted April 5-15 by polling firm Lake Research Partners shows that a majority of the Indian American potential voters surveyed then had a “very favorable” impression of President Barack Obama, while former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney received his highest share of responses in the “very unfavorable” category.
WASHINGTON, May 1 (Reuters) - The fast-growing Asian American community is largely untapped by U.S. presidential candidates and their political parties even though they are expected to vote in record numbers this fall, an opinion poll showed on Tuesday.
