New American Media: Why Hillary Clinton May Want to Speak a Little Tagalog

posted by Randall


 
Learning a little Tagalog, Vietnamese or Korean could come in handy for politicians in several swing states this campaign season.
 
An analysis by Andrew Lam in New American Media found those languages are among the most common spoken outside of English in Nevada, Virginia, Georgia, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Texas.
 
Filipino Americans are the largest Asian subgroup in Nevada making up more than half of the Asian American population-more than 120,000.
 
Vietnamese is the third most popular language behind English and Spanish in Oklahoma, Nebraska and Texas.
 
It’s the same for Korean in Virginia and Georgia.
 
Virginia, Nevada and Oklahoma are all considered swing states in the upcoming presidential election making the support of Filipinos, Vietnamese and Koreans critical for the candidates where every vote will literally count.
