Donald Trump has insulted women, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, and the disabled. It should not be surprising that the level of support for him among those groups is low. One group that he has not insulted (at least as far as I am aware) are Asian-Americans so one might expect that he is scoring relatively highly among them.
But via Kevin Drum, I came across this interesting chart that shows that his support among Asian-American is abysmally low. Trump’s average support is around 20%, compared to Clinton’s 70%. His support among
my peeps, the Asian Indians ( that I believe refers to those from the subcontinent and not just to India), is at just 9%. He does best among Filipinos at 32%. [Correction: I checked the questionnaire (see S10.2 on page 46) and it looks like they wanted only Indians and excluded Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, and Sri Lankans.]
Asian Americans make up about 5.6% of the total population, not insignificant. Maybe the lesson Trump will draw from this data is that he should start insulting Asians as well if he wants to raise his standing among them.
This made me curious about where Trump stands with another similar-sized group and that is the LGBT community. His running mate has a terrible record of opposing LGBT rights and Trump too has said that he would appoint Supreme Court judges who would roll back the right of same-sex marriage (something that will never happen) and has supported state-sanctioned discrimination of transgender people, though on the plus side, he has said that he would support amending the Civil Rights Act to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation. A survey found that the LGBT community supported Clinton over Trump by a margin of 72-20% and in the 2012 election, about 5% of voters identified themselves as LGBT.
So the LGBT and Asian American communities cannot be blamed in the eventuality of a Trump presidency.
