Forget Latino Voters, Think Asian Voters

Sure the GOP could commit to the grand new project of losing all elections for all time by chasing Latino voters by legalizing illegal aliens and re-endorsing the welfare state… while still losing the Latino vote to the Democrats who are on both of those positions like flies on cartel beheaded corpses.

Or we could look at the fastest growing minority group in America who don’t need affirmative action or government jobs and who have low levels of teenage births and a hard core work ethic. Asian voters.

I was going to write this article, but Spengler wrote it first

Asian Americans are the highest-income, best-educated and fastest-growing racial group in the United States. They are more satisfied than the general public with their lives, finances and the direction of the country, and they place more value than other Americans do on marriage, parenthood, hard work and career success…

Asians recently passed Hispanics as the largest group of new immigrants to the United States.

Asians “also stand out for their strong emphasis on family,” the Pew study reported. “More than half (54%) say that having a successful marriage is one of the most important things in life; just 34% of all American adults agree. Two-thirds of Asian-American adults (67%) say that being a good parent is one of the most important things in life; just 50% of all adults agree.”

Spengler pushes the idea that Asians went Democrat over immigration, but there’s no real sign of that. Again the Democrats are better at working with immigrants through community groups.

Any immigrant group with high rates of unmarried teenage births and broken families is going to be a burden and a source of trouble and a Democratic voting base. Asian-Americans do not fit this pattern, but that doesn’t mean that they will vote Republican unless the work is put in.

    The Republicans should hire Daniel Greenfield to give them training and advice.
    I speak fluent Mandarin, passable Japanese and can crawl or walk in Cantonese, Vietnamese, Thai and another Chinese dialect most have never heard of.
    I was born here but I have more understanding in common with native speakers of these languages and alien cultures than I ever could with an Obama voter.

    Yea , that'll work . Screw the Latinos and concentrate on the Asians , but after the 4 yr circus we all just went thru , you may find Asians in the same camp as Latinos .Especially since they are the largest demographic aside from whites , in the country . I wonder why Hannity says his " position on immigration has evolved " ? Everyone;s gonna have to rethink that one ……you got 4 years .

      I think the point he's trying to make is it would be EASIER to convince an asian to vote Republican than a Latino, because Asians by and large do believe in hard work (even the communist ones from China).

    What an excellent article by Daniel Greenfield! I have always admired his insightful analysis of important and serious issues affecting our society including threats to our national security as peace-loving Americans (people with common sense can see this to being the case! Just look at the transformation among Asian countries where the U.S. left its footprints in the past and how they have become prosperous and stable nations today. Liars and deceivers will disagree). As an American first of Asian heritage (Filipino), I agree 100% that we share the same values and core beliefs with Judeo-Christian Republican Americans who value success, freedom, and patriotic duties to country (the U.S. as our host country). The value we put in strong families, excellent education, and strong work ethic separates us by leap and bounds from other immigrants who come to destroy this great country from within through their sick beliefs and parasitic behaviors and practices in life. How I wish that Republicans will reach out more to Asians to win more of their votes in future important elections to preserve our country for future generations!

    Bravo, Mr. Greenfield!!!

    Some will, but if middle easterners are included then its harder and Indians and Japanese may be more anti-war outside of Orange County Ca I have rarely seen the Republician party work with asians. In Irvine a Republician Korean defeat a white Democratic.

    75 percent of Asians voted for Obama. That’s higher than 71% of Latinos who did the same. Last time I read that Asians identified themselves as Democrats over Republicans by a three-to-one margin.

    Republicans are not really social conservative; they are actually Christian conservative. Asian may be social conservative (and fiscal conservative,) but most of us are NOT Christian and certainly NOT Christian conservative. We are turned off the Republican platform of aggressively attempting to legislate and enforce their Christian conservative/fundamentalist values on us and everyone else who may not be Christian or religious.

    More respect for all the latinos that are at the south of the border. South America is watching what you are talkinhg about, flipping asians.

    Won’t work

    Asians aren’t interested i nthe GOP

    First off most of us don’t believe in Jeebus, and we aren’t interested in the fools who converted to Jeebus (looking at you Jindal and Haley)

    Secondly your racist and bigoted supporters turn us off.

    Thirdly we aren’t opposed to social programs like you are
