Why did Jews and Asians vote so heavily for Obama?


It's mind boggling how Asians and Jews are a voting bloc for the Dems.

Obama is obviously antagonistic towards Israel yet he gets 70% of the Jewish vote. Why? The Jewish population of America is probably the most prosperous demographic within any country anywhere on Earth. Obama is shitty to Israel, Jews have no interest in entitlements and Obama's policies towards business are antagonistic to Jewish business owners.

Yet, they voted for him at a 70% clip.

It's insane.

Same for Asians. 73% for Obama.

Asians and Jews don't need Obama for shite and because they are both magnificently prosperous demographics, voting for him actually works against them.

So WTF?

Short story... Jews have minority anxiety. Whole lot of Christians in America.

Neither view themselves as American first.

Which party is better for whom they claim first?

the answer to this question will be what helps you understand the actual democratic party, not what this board imagines it to be

I work with a ton of asians, mostly indians. They almost all voted for obama.

They should be republican - family oriented, fiscally conservative and pro-business. One of them commented to me that he would vote for republican if it wasn't for the wars in asia, and the demonization of muslims. he is muslim fwiw. He hated obama but hated romney more.

It's pretty much every group except white men that vote for the Dems. There's nothing specific to these groups. Heck the "Other" category on race voted for the Dems at about a 75% clip.

Nearly every group votes Democratic except white men. The party targeting one specific racial group is the GOP, which is why they have such a demographic problem. White men are increasingly a smaller portion of the electorate (and really, they win old white men).

The problem is not that the Dems target Asians, or Jews, or whatever. It's that the GOP targets old white men, and no one else is buying the rhetoric. It's the Dems who have a broad-based coalition.

Neither see themselves as Americans first? To all my black brothers and sisters what do you say to this slander? As one of the only Jewish poster, I can say that this is the attitude of the Tea Party. Its their white Christian country and Jews and blacks need not apply. Shame democracy got in the way.

Explains why they wanted to surpress the black vote. hey Hispanics you listening, hermano?

probably because they are not big on watching fox 'news', or listening to Limbo/Hannity/Beck.

They're Americans not Israelis.

Maybe it's the GOP stance on immigration, abortion and gay rights?

Tis sums up this board perfectly, you think people are very shallow. Of course Jews should only vote on what you perceive as jewish issues (of course many jews would see Jewish issues as much more then the state of Israel especially since we are Americans). Now actual Jews vote on a wide range of issues including education, social welfare, etc. on most issues Jews care about the democrats are closer to their position.

The gop can go on thinking the reason they lost the minority vote is because they didn't have a minority on the ballot and all they need to do to appeal to them is to run Herman Caine again. I reality they have to look at the issues minorities care about and stop demonizing them.

i don't see what Romney did to "target" white men in teh election. he focused on improving our economy almost exclusively. he basically ignored social issues unless prodded by the DEMs

how does that target any singular group? it doesn't

it's the groups' identification with the DEMs

give Jews and Asians some credit. Perhaps they didn't believe his policies would improve the economy for them.

It's funny how affluent areas and groups voted for Obama, even though he was promising to raise taxes on the rich. Weird, huh? I guess those rich Northeast folks just want free phones.


It's also pretty funny that somehow the GOP has convinced their average supporter that somehow taxation and specifically taxing the rich is going to bring about the end of the economy. There is no way the average Republican voter is sniffing the top brackets, but for some reason, they always vote to protect them. Is it the great American Dream that the GOP is selling? That maybe one day, you too might be one of those top earners?


Seriously, why are actual top earners voting blue?
