During the 2018 midterms, Asian Americans made up only 3 percent of the electorate.
Andrew Yang, entrepreneur and presidential candidate, admits the problem is that politicians didn’t reach out to Asian Americans.
According to a 2018 Asian American Voter Survey by the AAPI Data, the majority of Asian Americans had little to no contact from Democrats or Republicans.
Asian American voter turnout rates have always lagged behind those of other racial groups.
As a Democratic-leaning block, the Asian American vote definitely isn’t one to be ignored in the Democratic primaries and the upcoming election.
