Objectives. The critical importance of party identification as a determinant of vote choice is well documented. Given the increasing diversity of the population in the United States, it is critical that we understand the process of socialization into the political system for immigrant groups. It is especially important that we should be able to distinguish differences in socialization within a group.
Methods. Using a framework developed by Cain, Kiewiet, and Uhlaner (1991), we use newly available data to test their assertions about the development of party identification in Asian-American immigrants.
Results. Looking at a sample of foreign-born Asian Americans, we find that critical differences can exist within groups.
Conclusions. The differences within groups have an important effect on the development of party identification for those immigrants.
