MSNBC: New study paints picture of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander leaning left

posted by Randall

Richard Lui Richard Lui (pictured) of MSNBC reports Asian Americans are leaning left politically, according to a new study by the Center for American Progress.

58 percent of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders support a path to citizenship. That’s up significantly from 2008 when just 32 percent of AAPIs supported that.

The study also found Asian Americans support bigger government (55%) and higher taxes for the wealthy as a way to reduce the deficit (67%).

87% of AAPIs agreed with the statement “America will learn more from one another and be enriched by exposure to many different cultures.” That compares to 70% nationwide.

These attitudes may represent a generational swing in the AAPI community. You can read more about that on MSNBC.
