Helping Sen. Reid of Nevada

History was made. CNN's exit poll showed that Asian Ams in
Nevada voted 80% to 20% in favor of Sen. Reid,
achieving 80-20's
namesake! Thank you, Asian Ams in NV!

Behind the scene, there is an interesting story.

On Oct. 18, 80-20 received a request from a very high level
Democratic official to help boost Sen. Reid's campaign. At the time,
practically all polls predicted that Reid would be defeated. Knowing
that Sen. Reid, if victorious, would still be the Senate Majority Leader,
80-20 jumped in* to help.

Result? Reid won! Asian Ams gave Sen. Reid the highest % support
among all races helping to seal his victory. See CNN polls below.

"US Senate, Nevada, 3796 respondents
Vote by Race

---------------------Harry Reid ------ Sharren Angle ----- Others
White(72%) -------- 41% ------------------ 53% -------------- 6%
African-Am (6%)-- 78% ------------------ 11% -------------- 11%
Latino (15%) ------ 68% ------------------ 30% --------------- 2%
Asian (4%) --------- 79% -------------------19% --------------- 2%
Others (3%) ------- 52% ------------------- 38% --------------10% "

See how the same AsAm voters gave the Democratic candidate
for Governor in NV much lower % support, although blacks
and Latinos voted pretty much in the same %s.
This clearly
indicates that Asian Ams responded strongly to 80-20's urging.

"Governor, Nevada, 3749 respondents
Vote by Race

-------------------- Rory Reid ------ Brian Sandoval ----- Others
White (72%) -------- 32% ----------------- 53% -------------- 6%
African-Am (6%) ----86% ----------------- 10% -------------- 4%
Latino (15%) -------- 64% ------------------ 33% -------------- 3%
Asian (4%) ---------- 57% ------------------ 40% -------------- 3%
Others (3%) --------- 39% ----------------- 54% -------------- 7% "

Note that Sen. Reid enjoys a victory margin of 60 points, while
the victory margin is only 17 points for his son, Dory.

* 12 years ago 80-20 also took risks to jump in during our darkest
political days
-- when both political parties competed to distance from
AsAms, after the so called "Asia Gate." Many AsAm orgs hid while 80-
20 announced its aim to organize the entire AsAm community into a
political bloc for self protection.

P.S. (1) 80-20 needs more email addresses of Asian Ams in NV. Pls help
send e-addresses to me.
(2) Soon, 80-20 will share with you the exit poll results in CA, and how 80-20
will be wiser and stronger from the experience of CA's races.
