- More than two-thirds of registered Asian Americans surveyed say they plan to vote, but less than half have been contacted to vote by either the Democratic or Republican parties.
- Asian American respondents ranked health care (88%), jobs and the economy (86%), crime (85%), education (82%), gun control (73%) and the environment (75%) as “extremely important” or “very important” issues for deciding their votes in November. Voting rights, addressing racism and care infrastructure policies are also important.
- The vast majority of Asian Americans support federal investments in case policies: 73 - 78% agree (somewhat or strongly) that there should be more federal spending on child care, paid family and medical leave, and homecare.
- Asian American registered voters say they are more likely to vote for Democratic candidates than for Republican candidates in House and Senate elections. Indian Americans were the most likely to say they would vote for Democratic candidates. Vietnamese Americans were split (Senate) or leaned toward the Republican candidates (House).
- 73% of Asian Americans worry about experiencing hate crimes, harassment and discrimination at least “sometimes” and 24% said they worry about it “very often.” Among those who say they worry “very often” about hate crimes, support for Democratic House candidates is higher than support for Republican House candidates by a 3 to 1 margin.
