AIR DATE: November 8, 2012

Latinos got a lot of attention in this and the previous two elections. But Asian voters are making big inroads in the electorate and by many accounts, will be a huge force in upcoming elections. Ten percent of Nevadans are Asian, only Latinos out number them among minorities, and candidates and campaigns are realizing the value of the vote. We'll talk with Political Science Professor, Karthick Ramakrishnan, who authored the 2012 National Asian American Survey about the issues Asian voters are thinking about in this and future elections.
