Trump Lost More Of The Asian-American Vote Than The National Exit Polls Showed

By all accounts, President Trump did not win the Asian-American vote in 2016. But the size of Hillary Clinton’s margin of victory with voters in the fastest-growing racial group in the U.S. depends upon which exit poll you rely.

The National Exit Poll, funded by the major national media organizations, shows that Clinton won roughly two-thirds (65 percent) of Asian-American votes, while Trump received just over a quarter (27 percent), according to pollsters at Edison Research.

Asian-American support for Clinton was even more pronounced, though, in exit polling by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, or AALDEF, which provided NPR a preview of its latest report. CONT.
