Republicans clearly underperformed in the midterm elections given the incompetence of Joe Biden’s presidency, but Michael Barone, the iconic election expert and author of the annual “Almanac of American Politics,” has found that the Repubs did better than ever with minorities.
He points out: “Hispanics voted 29% Republican in 2012 but 39% Republican in 2022. The Asian Republican percentage increased from 25% to around 40%, and the black Republican percentage increased from 6% to 13%.
It remains a mystery to us why Republicans aren’t winning a strong majority of the Asian vote. They are hard-working, conservative values, economically successful, anti-communists, anti-crime, and the primary victims of the left’s racial preferences. Still, there’s much work to be done.
