Arkansas Filipino voters weigh in on President Trump coasting through primaries

Little Rock, Arkansas — As Democrats sort out their party’s presidential nominee, President Donald Trump easily won the Republican primaries on Super Tuesday.

His closest challenger, former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, who reportedly has no plans of dropping out, won one delegate.

In Arkansas, Trump got more votes than all Democratic candidates combined.

Fil-Am Bryan Poe is the director of elections in pulaski county. He gave us a first-hand look on Tuesday as votes were brought in from different precincts.

“What it comes down to is that it was not actually contested. There were other names on the ballots but they were relative unknowns.”

There are no reports yet on how many Filipinos voted here in Arkansas but according to Asian American Pacific Islander Vote 2018 survey, there are over 25,000 Asian American eligible voters in the state.
