A new survey of Asian and Pacific Islander voters in the United States suggests John Kerry is their preferred president.

The poll on behalf of New California Media found 43 per cent supported the Democratic party, compared with 36 per cent backing the Republicans.

The information is based on interviews last month to 1-thousand and four Asian and Pacific Islander registered voters who are likely to participate in the November presidential election.
