posted by Gracie Zheng

Ballot57% of Asian Americans polled in Texas voted for Obama during the presidential election last November, according to a recent survey by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF).

The findings are based on an exit poll of 613 Asian American voters in Texas, the largest survey of its kind in the nation.

“Our exit poll results revealed that within the growing Asian American electorate in Texas, support for comprehensive immigration reform and votes for Obama were consistently high across all categories, including across party lines,” said Glenn Magpantay, director of AALDEF’s Democracy Program.

The Texas exit poll included the cities of Sugarland and Houston that have the largest Asian American populations.
