Erosion of support of those in the Asian community for the Democratic party are attributable due to the following reasons.
- The push by progressive Democrats to end testing for admission to the city’s specialized schools. Which would place Asian students who make up a significant segment of those who have been admitted to these schools at a disadvantage in the future. By moving to a non merit system of selecting eligible students.
- Some major Ivy league University’s such as Yale, Harvard etc. have instituted admission quotas based on social engineering rather than merit which means less slots for students who merit admission to a ivy league university and disproportionately leaves out Asian students who work hard and academically deserve to be admitted.The Asian community perceive the progressive policies of the Democrats and justifiably so on issues such as economic, criminal Justice, social and foreign policy as inimical to their best interests.
The Democrats noting their erosion of support in the Asian community respond by pulling out the race card. And blaming the uptick for crimes against Asians
on President Trump for correctly holding the Govt of China responsible for the coronavirus pandemic. Rather than the soft on crime policies being enacted on the Federal State and local Government level by the Democrats.
