The recent backlash from members of the Chinese American community in California against efforts to bring back racial preferences to college admissions is giving renewed hope to the conservative movement and the Republican party.
A guest blog by Lanhee Chen in the Los Angeles Times offers a glimpse into that thinking.
Chen is the former policy director for the 2012 Mitt Romney presidential campaign and a research fellow at Stanford’s conservative Hoover Institute.
In 1988, 54% of Asian Americans voted for George Bush. But the community has gone overwhelmingly Democratic ever since then.
Chen argues that the interests of Asian Americans on education are at odds with the Democrats and that this could mark a turning point of that community away from Democrats.
