New poll finds AAPI voters may have help Dems over the line


A new poll suggests that AAPI voters may have helped a few Democratic candidates win key election races.

The AAPI Civic Engagement Fund conducted an election eve poll to examine the power of Asian American voters. They believe the results of the poll demonstrate that Asian Americans helped Democrats after rumors that a red wave might favor Republicans.

According to a press release, the poll results highlighted the race in California’s 47th Congressional district between Democratic incumbent Katie Porter and her Republican challenger Scott Baugh. There were 111,489 citizen, voting-age Asian Americans in CA-47, representing 23 percent of the adult population in the district. The poll found that Asian Americans favored Porter 53% to 36%. The race is currently still too close to call.

The poll also believes that Asian American voters could help decide the race in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional district between Democratic incumbent Susie Lee leads Republican challenger April Becker. According to The New York Times, Lee is leading Becker by just over 3,500 votes with 88% of districts reporting. There are an estimated 82,290 citizen, voting-age Asian Americans in the district. The poll found that 47% of Asian American voters supported Lee and 43% supported Becker.

The fund’s poll also found that Asian Americans had the second-highest net support for Democrats nationally: 51% supported Democrats and 37% supported Republicans.
