There is a natural tendency to assume that if you don’t know about something, it likely does not exist. I fell into such a trap recently, replying to a questioner that there just wasn’t much polling giving us insight into the Asian American community. I was wrong.
One of the more surprising voting trends in American politics over the past two decades is the dramatic shift of Asian Americans toward the Democratic Party.
According to exit polls in the Nov. 6 election, Asian American voters favored Obama over Romney by a ratio of more than 3-to-1 (76 percent versus 23 percent). This has puzzled a number of Republicans.
Last week, I pointed out that there is no such thing as a natural social-conservative skew among Latino Americans. But that leaves open a rejoinder, expressed by several readers: The GOP doesn’t need to get all of the Latino vote, just its fair share. That’s true, and I should have made my point clearer.
Republicans have been rallying around a drive to adopt positions that appeal to Latinos since their defeat in this month's presidential contest. But the GOP is also having problems attracting the votes of an even faster growing group: Asian Americans.
Trade with China and out sourcing jobs are controversial topics among political contenders from both sides of the aisle...but did one candidate go too far?
The organization of Chinese Americans of Greater Cleveland is asking the Ohio Republican Party to pull what they consider an offensive campaign ad.
CLEVELAND, Ohio --Despite long lines in Cuyahoga County again Monday, the last day to vote early in-person, the impact of fewer days to cast those ballots was apparent in the numbers.
SAN FRANCISCO – New Latino and Asian American voters are swelling the registered-voter rolls in California, and how they vote could sway the outcome of next Tuesday’s general election, according to the results of a new Field Poll.
Nine Asian American organizations are partnering for a rally in downtown L.A. Saturday that is intended to demonstrate the community's growing political influence.
Americans don’t vote based on race. Many would like to believe that.That wasn’t the case when I first worked in local politics 25 years ago. The minority candidates would huddle to choose one from their ranks to get elected.
