New poll from NC Asian Americans Together reveals candidates in the battleground state of North Carolina have overlooked a powerful voting bloc

With an estimated 216,000 AAPI voters in the state, the Asian American electorate in North Carolina has the potential to influence election outcomes this year. In toss-up races where state and federal candidates must fight for every vote, many campaigns have overlooked the fastest-growing racial demographic in the state. A new poll from North Carolina Asian Americans Together (NCAAT) and UC San Diego’s U.S. Immigration Policy Center has found that only 39% of AAPI voters have been contacted by any political party about this year’s election.
