“A Defining, Movement-Making Election”: Some Findings on the AAPI Youth Vote in 2020”
Asian Americans are the fastest growing demographic among eligible voters, and more than one in three eligible voters is a Millennial or member of GenZ. This talk presents some fresh new data from a nationally representative survey of AAPIs aged 18 to 34. The study finds that younger Asian Americans hold progressive views on a broad range of issues and identify with mass movements for social change, but a significant share are skeptical about electoral participation and the benefits of organizing as Asian Americans.
