    as well. Judging by the percent of the electorate they compose in exit polls (especially California) and turn-out rates amongst eligible voters (lower than Hispanics), I think that you generally divide the percent Asian overall by two to get the percent Asian in the electorate. So it would be 3% Asian, since Harris is 6% Asian.

    Anyways, fascinating stuff!

      That is a good point, and I probably didn't discount Asian turnout quite as much as I should have.

      Asian VAP in Harris County is 6.7% though (not just 6%). The real % may more likely be 4% than the 5% that I assumed. 3% could be possible, but seems like it might be too low to me.
