In an interview with Yahoo Finance, Democrat Andrew Yang said he was “surprised and disappointed” that Asian Americans did not “uniformly reject Trump.”
According to NBC exit polls, 31% of Asian Americans voted for Trump, while 63% voted for Biden.
Exit polling from Edison Research similarly found 30% of Asian Americans voted for Trump.
Yang said “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.”
The day after the election, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also similarly lamented how many Latinos voted Republican.
I won’t comment much on tonight’s results as they are evolving and ongoing, but I will say we’ve been sounding the alarm about Dem vulnerabilities w/ Latinos for a long, long time.
There is a strategy and a path, but the necessary effort simply hasn’t been put in ⬇️ https://t.co/HljnWYgeju
