Exit Poll: Most Asians, Including Fil-Ams, Voted for Obama
A nonpartisan multilingual exit poll of Asian American voters in the November 2012 Presidential Elections--the largest survey of its kind in the nation--showed that the majority of Asian Americans voted for Barack Obama. Contrary to data from another poll previous to the election, up to 65 percent of Filipino Americans chose Obama over Mitt Romney.
The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) poll of 9,096 Asian American voters showed three-quarters (77%) of Asian Americans polled voted for Barack Obama for President: from highest to lowest--Bangladeshi (96%); Pakistani (91%); Indian (84%); Chinese (81%); Korean (78%); Filipino (65%); and Vietnamese (44%). The poll was conducted in 37 cities across 14 states on Election Day.
