Charles Murray has a sad about Asians (h/t reader S):
And yet something has happened to define conservatism in the minds of Asians as deeply unattractive, despite all the reasons that should naturally lead them to vote for a party that is identified with liberty, opportunity to get ahead, and economic growth. I propose that the explanation is simple. Those are not the themes that define the Republican Party in the public mind. Republicans are seen by Asians—as they are by Latinos, blacks, and some large proportion of whites—as the party of Bible-thumping, anti-gay, anti-abortion creationists. Factually, that’s ludicrously inaccurate. In the public mind, except among Republicans, that image is taken for reality.
White evangelicals made up about half of Republican primary voters in a 14 state poll, Republicans are substantially more likely to be creationists than Democrats of independents, 72% of Republicans identify as pro-life (as compared with 38% of Democrats), Republicans have consistently opposed marriage equality, even putting measures opposing it on ballot initiatives.
So Murray is just plain wrong about the Republican party.
