Asian-Americans Shift from GOP to Democrats

For the Republican Party, Asian-Americans are looking like the group that got away.

America's fastest-growing minority was a GOP bloc as recently as 20 years ago. In 1992, it went 55% to 31% for George H.W. Bush over Bill Clinton, with Ross Perot picking up most of the rest. Now, it votes decisively for Democrats. In 2012, preliminary exit poll results Asian-Americans gave Barack Obama a crushing 73%-26% win over Mitt Romney. This is a wider gap than among Hispanics, a historically Democratic group, who backed him 71%-27%.
