A UCLA report published today shows that Asian Americans and Latinos in California, Texas and Virginia went to the polls in smaller numbers in the primaries than they did in the primary elections four years ago. Because those three states have large Asian American and Latino populations, the findings may signal that Democratic political campaigns have more work to do to engage those voters before the November elections. In Illinois, the authors focused only on precincts in Chicago due to data limitations and its large Latino population. Those states represent almost one-third of Democratic Party delegates, and half of them are seen as battleground states for the presidential election.
