    Why is the GOP driving away so many ethnic groups? Could be they are smart enough to realize that the GOP has no interest in their well being.

    Could be they (the ethnic groups) don't understand the concept of personal responsibility

    Salty, oh Salty if you knew Asians you would know that statement is not true. They are extremely family oriented and take personal responsibility seriously. Perhaps that is why, as a group, they earn more than the average American.

    As they are so family centered you would think the "family values" party would attract them. I guess they have see how hollow that stance is within the GOP.

    I am sure there are some Asians on welfare, though I've never met one and I do know many, many Asians.

    Well, it's hard to talk about the "Asian vote" since that's an umbrella term that lumps in a bunch of people from different countries with different languages and majority religions and all.

    The thing about them is that over a third of them are concentrated in CA and NY state and that any poll of this group has a small sample size. They may be voting that way in those two states just because they're no different from the other voters.

    The writer just glossed over what happened in the 2014 midterms, where the GOP won the group 51-49, after losing the Asian vote 40-60 in just the last midterms in 2010. This is the problem you have with this voter bloc, they are ill-defined from the start.

    Asians are more inclined to accept homosexuality and abortion, two big talking points with the Dems.

    This has not been the case in the families I have known Salty. The parents have taught responsibility to the kids ... well many are adults now ... that I know.

    With the logic you used in your reply it would mean there are no responsible White folk left ... except for the first generation here now. You and I know this is not true.

    And what we know is really not true is that the Democrats are worried about their winning the Oriental votes. And the Mexican votes. And the Jewish votes and money. And the black votes. And the union votes and money. The Democrats are running a one percenter candidate who earned $25,000,000 last year. It looks like a cakewalk for the Democrats in 2016. The one percent rules!

    Asians are more liberal on homosexuality and abortion so they naturally gravitate to the Democrats.
