Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are one of the fastest growing populations in the United States. Between 2000 and 2010, the Asian American population grew faster than any other racial group, at a rate of 46%. They are also an important and growing political constituency, as 600,000 new Asian American voters entered the electorate in 2008 and a similar number is expected to do so in 2012.
