    7 of the top 10 are below the state average. I guess we can quibble over whether 70% is "most" or not. But it's still more data than "Asians work real hard"

    I honestly don't think their voting records mean much here.

    I agree with that point. And I do believe it is a cultural issue.

    The answer to the question is because of their education, and strong family unit, same as for Jewish people. Not where they live, or religion, or political affiliation, or faith or any other red herring in this thread.
