Only 29% voted for Trump in 2016

The Guardian reports that Donald Trump gained 5% more votes with Asian Americans in 2020 than he did in 2016.

Data from the New York Times exit polls shows that in only 29% of Asian Americans voted for Trump in 2016. Four years later, 34% of Asian Americans voted for the Republican.

Meanwhile, a smaller percentage of Asian Americans voted for Joe Biden in 2020 than Hilary Clinton in 2016.

An NBC News Exit Poll showed that 63% of Asian Americans voted for Joe Biden compared to 65% for Hilary Clinton in 2016.

The New York Times exit polls showed an even bigger disparity, suggesting that only 61% of Asian Americans voted for Biden compared to 65% for Clinton.

Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang has since expressed his disappointment that more Asian Americans did not vote against Trump.

“I was surprised and disappointed by those figures. I thought that Asian Americans would uniformly reject Trump given how much he has thrown us under the bus, where the coronavirus is concerned,” Yang said.

In other news, Kpop fans were flooding the #MillionMAGAMarch hashtag to protest a pro-Trump rally over the weekend.
