More than 50 percent of AAPI voters said they have not been contacted by either party in the past year, said Juliet K. Choi, President and CEO of Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum. Despite this, nearly 75 percent of registered AAPI voters are motivated to vote.
Health care is the No. 1 priority for the AAPI community, with nearly 90 percent of respondents identifying it as top of mind. Health care included access to women’s health care and abortion rights. Inflation and the economy ranked second and crime third for AAPI Gen Z voters.
But the conversation around crime is nuanced and multidimensional, said Choi.
