Asians in NYC Left DNC in Droves Due to Rising Crime

'Why should I support Democrats who discriminate against me? ... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A recent report revealed that Asians in New York City left the Democrat party in droves to support the GOP in the 2022 midterm elections, due to the significant spike in the city’s crime rates.

The rate of major crimes in the city skyrocketed by 22% in 2022, with racial attacks against Asians quadrupling.

According to the Daily Caller, Asian voters—who are usually a reliable voting population for the DNC—are voting red in significant numbers.

“My vote was purely a message to Democrats. Don’t take my vote for granted,” said Karen Wang, a lifelong Democrat.

The series of interviews by the New York Times revealed that increases in racially charged crime was the primary reason for Asians switching parties.

Several brutal crimes against Asian Americans took place in New York state in 2022. One woman was pushed onto the subway tracks, another was stabbed 40 times in her home.

Wang was not the only longstanding Democrat to change her tune to send a message to the Democrat Party.

“Why should I support Democrats who discriminate against me?” Lailing Yu said.

The New York governor’s race was tight, with Democrat incumbent Kathy Hochul pulling out the win with 53% of the vote.

New Yorkers are begging Hochul to address the crime problem after barely beating out her opponent Lee Zeldin, who ran on a platform emphasizing safety.

“Hochul needs to ride these trains and get a feel for what we’re seeing every day. You can bend statistics all you want, but the eye doesn’t lie,” said a wary New Yorker in an interview with the New York Post. “The laws in the state are enabling crime, and Hochul’s got to find a way to change them.”

Democrat Mayor Eric Adams, who won his seat in 2021 after claiming he would address the public safety issues the city is facing, is also facing criticism for his handling of the city’s crime wave.
