Minorities in the Democratic coalition are becoming more rivalrous?

In presidential elections, Democrats win 70 percent of Hispanics, Jews and Asian-Americans and 90 percent of blacks. Both of America's great national parties are coalitions. Within the Democratic coalition, Asian-Americans are now in conflict with blacks and Hispanics over admission policies at elite schools and universities.

Asian-Americans are "overrepresented" where students are admitted based on test scores or entrance exams. Black and Hispanic leaders are demanding that student bodies, regardless of test scores, look like the community. And if this requires affirmative action based upon race and ethnicity, so be it.

The minorities of color in the Democratic coalition are growing, as the base of the GOP is aging and shrinking. But these minorities are also becoming more rivalrous, competitive and demanding. And the further they move left, they more they move outside the American mainstream.

True. The differences in the GOP are far more amicable among themselves that those of the Dems. The Dems constantly contradict each other in the most noticable ways where the GOP tends to internalize and discuss their differences in conference. The only people I see trying to convince us that the conflict within the GOP is tearing us apart are the lefties who actually have a huge problem of their own. The highly stylized ethnic and idealogical groups in the Democrat party are far more competitive and vocally critical of each other.
