The GOP -- Not a Club For Christians

I think the point here is that it should be possible for the Republican party to broaden its base, they don't have to concede that all non white people are automatically part of the Democrat base. I think it's a fair point that the GOP could do a better job of crafting a message that appeals to non Christian voters.

In the scramble to make the GOP more diverse, a lot of people are looking at Asian Americans, whom many believe are a natural constituency for the party. I would love it if Asian Americans converted en masse to the Republican Party, but the challenge for Republicans is harder than many appreciate.

President Obama did spectacularly well with Asian Americans, garnering nearly three-quarters of their vote. This runs counter to a lot of conventional wisdom on both the left and the right. On average, Asian American family income is higher and poverty is lower than it is for non-Latino whites....
