    more likely to live in blue states and big cities.

    I think it's safe to say that there are more Asians in the west coast states, Hawaii and some of the big eastern cities than in the inland and southeast states.  I know that there are areas around the Gulf with large pockets of Vietnamese population, but they seem to be more working class people and thus not really part of the repubs demographic.

    It's a little bit of a chicken-and-egg thing.  Are these places blue(r) because Asian voters tend to go for Dems?  Or are Asian voters influenced by living in a deep blue area?  Probably a bit of both.
