Vietnamese-Americans are more likely to vote for President Donald Trump over Democrat Joe Biden in November’s election, according to the 2020 Asian American Voter Survey conducted by three Asian American civic engagement groups.
The survey – referred to as AAVS and conducted by APIAVote, AAPI Data, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice – polled 1,569 registered voters of Chinese, Indian, Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, and Filipino descent across the nation.
When its results were released September 15, members of Joe Biden’s campaign celebrated the support among Asian American voters. Overall, the AAVS showed Asian Americans preferred Biden to Trump by 54% to 30%.
But there was one Asian group to still lean toward Trump, the data showed.
Out of all the Vietnamese-Americans surveyed, almost half said they would vote for Trump if the election were held today. Around a third said they’d go for Biden. Similarly, Vietnamese-Americans was the only group surveyed to identify more Republican than Democrat, though almost a third called themselves Independents.
Thinking about the upcoming November election for the U.S. House of Representatives in your Congressional district… If the election were being held today…
