i doubt if east asians will vote against obama. clearly the chinese govt thinks he's great (after all, he's either their manchurian and/or he pees in his pants about them) and so the jingoistic hans everywhere like him.
but all those indian-americans who now realize their role is to be water-carriers and wood-hewers for obama and his white and chinese pals should be rethinking their affair with the democrates.
did you guys think just because obama is brown/black he had your interests in mind? talk of naivete! obama has only one person's interests in mind. his own.
the famed kunchan nambiar quip comes to mind again: "the lighthouse is wonderful, now how about some money for me?", when he was asked why he hadn't composed a paean to the king's new lighthouse. pithy, and to the point.
obama is always looking out for Numero Uno, his own bony ass.

All this evidence strongly suggests that Republicans made gains and Democrats suffered significant losses among Asian, and specifically among Indian-American voters, in Middlesex County. This upscale group, ready enough to vote for John Kerry in 2004 and Barack Obama in 2008, seems to have been repelled by New Jersey's high taxes and big government under Jon Corzine. There should be some lessons here for Republicans generally—and for Democrats as well.
By my count (subject to arithmetic error) New Jersey's 7th congressional district, which includes Woodbridge Township and much of Edison Township, voted 56%-36% for Christie over Corzine—a sharp reversal of its 50%-49% preference for Obama over McCain in 2008.
Plus, down in Virginia, Fairfax County, which is 16% "Asian only" and which like Middlesex County voted 60%-39% for Barack Obama, voted 51%-49% for Republican Governor-elect Bob McDonnell
