A surge in Asian Americans voting early is being attributed to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by some down ballot candidates. It's also evidence that the demographic has growing clout in U.S. politics.

The Democratic analytical firm Catalist reports that Asian-Americans are voting in increased numbers in the swing states that could determine the outcome of the 2016 presidential election

Asian American Democratic congressman Ted Lieu said the increased number of Asian Americans going to the polls can be traced to Trump's campaign.

"If you see the early votes that have happened, in Nevada and in Florida, there has been a Trump effect, and that is you have Latinos and Asian Americans surging in voting. You have a lot of minorities who are low propensity voters now voting because they are either scared or mad at Donald Trump," said Lieu.

While Trump's stance and sometimes controversial statements about U.S. immigration policy may be motivating some minority groups to head to the polls, Lieu's Republican opponent, pediatric eye surgeon Kenneth Wright, said border security is one of things that motivated him to run against Lieu.

"We can't have open borders. There are human traffickers coming across that border. Drug, horrible, terrorist could come across, we can't have open borders." Wright said. "It's time citizens stand up against career politicians and get them the heck out and put in people that are citizens that want to work for America."

Rising political clout

The early voting surge also reflects that the growing Asian American electorate is a group that is gaining political power in the U.S.

The number of Asians running for political office is also increasing said Representative Judy Chu, the first Chinese American woman elected to the U.S. Congress. She is also Chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. There are currently 33 Asian and Pacific Islander candidates across the country running for federal office according to the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS).

Chu and Lieu are both running for reelection in predominantly Democratic districts in Southern California.

While Chu represents a district that is largely Asian and Latino, Lieu's district includes a large population of Jewish Americans as well as Asian Americans.

Chu's Republican opponent, former FBI agent and small business owner, Jack Orswell had tried to run against Chu several times before, but this time, he said the Trump effect could make the outcome of races unpredictable.

"I don't know what the Trump effect is. All I know is its going to be extremely different from any previous election, and as a down ticket candidate my election chances are dependent on the presidential race," said Orswell.

Future of Asian and Pacific Islander candidates

Beyond the White House in this election, Chu said the down ballot Asian and Pacific Islander candidates need to be coalition candidates to win their race.

"Nearly every Asian Pacific Islander candidate runs in a district that is not majority Asian. That's the nature of America." Chu continued, "We have to make sure that we reach out to everybody of every ethnic background and that we have a message that's universal for all of them," said Chu.

As for the Asian American electorate, Chu said this demographic is becoming the margin of victory in many swing states.

"In the last decade, we have doubled our voter registration numbers from two to four million and in certain states that are making a big difference in this election, Nevada, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, we are a swing population." Chu continued, "Just think if we can swing Nevada, we can swing Virginia, we can actually determine who the next president of the United States will be."
