"Exit polls show that 73% of Asian Americans backed Obama, an 11-point increase since 2008. Asian Americans came out in such force for Obama that they topped Latinos as his second-most supportive ethnic group, behind African Americans."

Latinos, who made up 10% of the electorate, went 67% for Obama, 5 points higher than in 2008.

"While Asians accounted for just 3% of the electorate – up from 2% in 2008 – their overwhelming support made them a key component of the Obama coalition, especially in swing states like Virginia, Florida and Colorado. "

Asian Americans overwhelmingly backed Obama, Democrats

It’s an excellent chance for people to step back and say, ‘Are we happy with 40 years of campaign finance and the lack of disclosure?’ There’s a lot of irony, with the 40th anniversary of Watergate and where we are now. Robert Lucas speaking to Kim Barker of ProPublica

ProPublica: The Return of CREEP

Kim Barker writes for ProPublicaon the return of CREEP, this time as a Super PAC. Full article below, but check out the article at ProPublica.com by clicking here.

"With 300-plus super PACs and counting, it would be easy to miss CREEP. But last Thursday, a new super PAC ingeniously named the Committee for the Re-Election of the President registered with the Federal Election Commission.”

The committee is based out of a post office box at the Watergate Complex—an homage, of course, to the other Committee for the Re-Election of the President, the fundraising committee for President Richard Nixon that became embroiled in the Watergate scandal.

It’s an inside joke with a serious punchline. The old CREEP (which used the acronym CRP and at one point was called the Committee to Re-Elect the President) helped spur the creation of the FEC.
