PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup Daily tracking data reveal that Asian-Americans tend to be more Democratic and much less conservative than the general population in their political views.

These findings are based on aggregated data from Gallup's 2009 Daily tracking survey, including interviews with more than 4,000 Asian-Americans. For the purpose of analysis, respondents are categorized as Asian-Americans if they self-identify their race as Asian.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/125579/Asian-Americans-Lean-Left-Politically.aspx

Some notable findings --

*41% of Asians identify politically as Democrats, 41% as independents, and 16% as Republicans.

*Asians are the only racial group with a higher proportion of self-identified liberals than conservatives and also have the highest percentage of moderates of any group. 

*Asians have the lowest rates of church attendance and are the least religious of the major racial groups in the U.S.

Biggest cause for them leaning left IMO. The inverse thing (so religious) is true for blacks and hispanics leaning right socially no?

I've always felt that modern conservatism couldn't exist in its current form or numbers without religion.

Sort of true. Even religious Asian groups like Koreans and Filipinos tend to be Democrats, though. (Koreans are particularly mysterious as they are generally well-off and are mostly evangelicals--Filipinos are mostly Catholics and in general relatively poor.)

I guess the Vietnamese would be the exception?

Source? I'd always thought that there was a large Republican contingent among Koreans, as well as Taiwanese Chinese, because of the anti-communist posture that those countries historically had. And also among Vietnamese, for similar obvious reasons.
