Democratic presidential primary on June 7th
Here is how. Just put the following facts together. You shall agree that 80-20's calculation is right, provided that all CA AsAms voters will do their duty to fight for their children's future by asserting our political clout.
1. In a presidential general election, AsAms roughly represent about 7.4% of
the vote in CA among either Democrats, or Republicans or Declines/
2. However, the turnout in recent Democratic presidential primaries this year
has been low. It'll be about 1/3 that of the general election. If AsAm voters will all turn out to vote, realizing that a presidential primary in CA is about
our only chance to tell politicians that we can affect the outcome of an
important election, then the 7.4% triples to 22.2%.
3. The Democratic presidential primary in CA is open, though the Republican
one is not. That is, Declines/Independents may register to vote in a Dem.
4. An open Dem. primary is a godsend for AsAms, because AsAms are
twice as likely to register as Declines than all other voters, thereby
drastically increasing AsAm voting clout. In CA, the number of AsAm
Decline voters is at least as large as that of registered Democrats. If they
all follow 80-20's advice and register to vote as Democrats in the June
7th primary, then the 22.2% becomes 44.4% .
5. 80-20 is confident that these voters will follow its recommendation to vote
for either Sanders or Clinton. The one endorsed by 80-20 will win by a
landslide, winning a huge % of convention delegates in a state with the
largest number of delegates.
With the endorsement of 80-20, after the CA primary, either Bernie will regain his momentum, or Hillary will knock Bernie out. So winning 80-20's endorsement is a MUST for both campaigns.
The above is 80-20's bargaining power with both presidential candidates. But it can only succeed with your help. If you don't live in CA, you can still help by forwarding this email to your relatives and friends in CA.,
To convince the two candidates to answer our questionnaire, 80-20 needs
200 support emails in short but powerful sentences from you. Email me to support 80-20's planned new campaign. If we get the 200 or more emails,
80-20 will buy media time in CA prior to June 7, to drive the AsAm vote out.
YOUR Proud Achievement in 2008, Utilizing CA Primary
In 2008, H. Clinton had already answered 80-20's questionnaire with 6 yeses. Obama refused to do so. So 80-20 endorsed Clinton in the CA primary
