Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Dems could write a manual how to loose momentous elections. Or they may be using one. Fake news, fake elections...

Clinton did not make Asian Americans overly enthusiastic either:

Clinton's Asian American snub could have cost her Michigan

Asian Americans, after the final ballots were cast on election day, had voted for Clinton over Trump by a whopping 79% to 17% nationwide margin, according to exit polls by the nonprofit Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund.

But there are hints that Michigan might have gone "blue" if Clinton had won a stronger and earlier endorsement from an influential national Asian American voter organization. As it turns out, Michigan's Asians favored Clinton by a 65% to 29% margin, noticeably less than the nationwide average.

[...] S.B. Woo, the president of the 80-20 National Asian American PAC, a political action committee, contends that Clinton could have pulled more Asian American votes in Michigan, as well as nationally, if she had actively pursued the group's endorsement.

Woo noted in an article posted on 80-20's website that Clinton was asked to attend 80-20's endorsement convention in August with the promise of a full endorsement if she showed up. But Clinton declined.
