American Politics is Rough and Tumble

     What counts in American politics is CLOUT - the ability to affect the outcome of an important election or a piece of critical legislation.

     Without clout, our equal opportunity in college admissions & in job advancement, can be denied. Even our rights, to remain innocent unless proven guilty, can be violated. Remember the arrest, indictment, and terrifying legal grinds suffered by Sherry Chen (2012), Prof. Xiaoxing Xi (2015) and Prof. Anming Hu (2020)?

     How do we acquire that kind of CLOUT? Through a BLOC VOTEClick
here to understand the power of a Bloc Vote.

     Many leaders of 80-20 have sacrificed deeply to achieve the Cohesive 
Bloc Vote shown in the table below. They volunteered decades of their lives & hundreds of thousands of their money so that you can use this powerful tool to
protect your children. Please read the following carefully.

Asian American’s Cohesive Bloc Vote In Presidential Election,
Led by 80-20 (All data from New York Times’ Exit Polls)  
     See how much difference 80-20’s 3 kinds of endorsements makes for a presidential candidate: endorse, or endorse with reservation, or no endorsement at all! Each point in the rightmost column means 60,000 Asian American votes in the 2020 presidential election.
     Professional politicians ("pols" from here on) used to think that the above table didn’t show sufficient correlations between 80-20’s 3 kinds of endorse-ments and the results in the rightmost column. 

     Pols maintained that the huge increasing in advantage for the Dem. pres. candidate up till Obama’s 2nd election is simply the trend of all immigrant communities. When refugee immigrants first came to the U.S., they always favored the Republican Presidential candidates, because the GOP candidates are more anti-communism. Examples are the cuban, the Korean and the Vietnamese voters. However, gradually the immigrants realized that Dem. Party provided more economic benefits to the immigrant community so they began to favor Dems. The pols maintain that the slight decrease for Kerry was simply fortuitous. When the big decrease for H. Clinton came out in 2016. The pols explained that immigrants were always more supportive of an incumbent president. Hence, H. Clinton’s is expected to enjoy a lesser margin of advantage than Obama’s 2nd election. 

     In 2020, however, Biden's margin of advantage from AsAm votes has shrunk to 20 points less than Obama's 2nd term. If there is another shrink of that size, AsAms may be reverting to favoring a Republican presidential candidate again. We hope that the Democratic pols will wake up and start urging Democratic presidential candidate to pay much more attention to the CLOUT of 80-20, which desires nothing more than equal opportunity for AsAms.
