Washington, Mar. 5 (ANI): Asian-Americans lean more towards the Democrats, but are not strongly committed to either the GOP or the Democratic Party, a new poll has found.

According to a Gallup Poll, nearly 57 percent of Asian-Americans lean more towards the Democratic, compared with 28 percent who lean towards Republican and 13 percent who are independent.

The poll showed that Asian-Americans, however, did not have strong ties to either party, Politico reports.

When asked which party they identified with, 46 percent responded they were independent, compared with the 36 percent who said the Democratic Party and the 17 percent who answered GOP.

According to the report, Gallup noted that the GOP did not fare well with the Asian-American vote during the last presidential election cycle, losing the constituency, which made up about three percent of the electorate in 2012, by an estimated 72 percent to 26 percent margin. (ANI)
