There is a myth that most Asian Americans tend to vote for Republican candidates.  Well, in the last two elections, the polls showed that they overwhelmingly voted for Democratic candidates to the tune of 64% and 79% respectively.   Being the fastest minority voting bloc, this is a troublesome sign for the future of the Republican party in a nation-wide election.   Hispanics actually have less affinity for Democratic candidates than Asian-Americans in the 2012 election.   They voted 74% (in 2008)  and 76% (in 2012) for Democratic candidates.
