The Asian Vote in 2020

"The Asian vote in 2020 was a bright spot for Democrats in 2020 in that, unlike other components of the nonwhite vote, Democrats’ margins compared to 2016 suffered only a tiny decline (less than a point) compared to a 7 point decline among black voters and a 16 point decline among Hispanic voters (Catalist two party vote data). In addition, Asian turnout went up more than other racial groups including whites according to both the Census Bureau and Catalist.
Add in the fact that Asians are the fastest-growing racial group in the country and you clearly have a development that’s helpful for the Democrats. But how helpful? Ron Brownstein on the Atlantic site advised:
Don’t sleep on Asian American voters. The bloc’s power is growing fast. That could be bad news for the GOP…. An intractable deficit among the nation’s fastest-growing racial group could be part of the price Republicans pay for allowing Trump to redefine their party in his image.
It’s important to put this trend in perspective."
