The Asian vote in 2012


U.S. Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) speaks during day two of the Democratic National Convention at Time Warner Cable Arena on September 5, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

There are over 14 million people of Asian descent in the U.S., according to the 2010 Census. That means any cohesive bloc of similarly-voting Asians could have a big sway in who wins the presidency. What are the key issues for Asian-American voters? Are there specific strategies and talking points the Democrats are using to court the Asian vote? What have the GOP done to reach out to the various Asian voting communities?


How do you think the Asian vote will affect the 2012 election?
