New survey results released from a poll taken by the Asian American Legal Defense & Education Fund found an overwhelming majority of Filipino Americans voted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney, reports Yahoo
Many pre-election projections predicted the Filipino American community would lean towards Romney, but the multi-lingual AALDEF poll found 65% voted for Obama. That’s a significant majority, but by a slimmer margin than most other Asian American subgroups.
9,000 voters were surveyed in 37 cities in 14 states. Overall, 77 percent of Asian Americans voted for Obama in November.
