Guide to Asian American Public Opinion

[one-fifth-first] [/one-fifth-first]
[three-fifths]Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities have long been among the fastest growing populations in the United States. Increasingly, they are also being known for their quickly-developing civic and political infrastructure–including a growing base of voters, donors, elected officials, appointees, and public policy advocates. This transformation is ongoing, and the potential clout of AAPIs is already being realized in many states and localities, and especially in elections with narrow margins.

Below, we have compiled a guide to public opinion data on Asian Americans. Use the filter buttons to sort through infographics from the Fall 2018 and Spring 2016 Asian American Voter Survey. Click on an infographic to see a link to download the original report as well as cross-tabulations.

Infographics from additional surveys and reports to be added soon.[/three-fifths]
