RSF Author Karthick Ramakrishnan on Asian-American Political Trends

February 28, 2012

Karthick Ramakrishnan, a former RSF Visiting Scholar, spoke this month with a local edition of HLN about changing political attitudes among Asian Americans, a group that grew more than 40 percent between 2000 and 2010. "From 1992, Asians were voting about a third for the Democratic candidate for President," he says in the interview. "In the most recent election, two out of three were voting for Obama, so that's a huge shift." Ramakrishnan also shares insights from his RSF book Asian American Political Participation, which he discussed on this blog last year. Watch the interview below:
