I'm running for ASB President at my school against a white girl (yes this is actually kinda important). I am aiming to become the 2nd Asian president of all time there, the first being my very own sister who won after campaigning her ass off against one of her closest friends, who too was white. I honestly did not think I would even be close to competing until I thought up the factors in this race of races.
A) No matter what, every Asian in the school will vote for me. Not only that, the Asian club president is a friend of mine and he is already willing to advocate for me to his entire network of connections.
B) I have the captain of the drum line, along with the drum major, able to tell everyone to vote for me. The entire band. That's a LOT of people. Not only that, but they spite preppy people (the girl), and will vote for me even if they don't listen/hear the leaders of their band.
C) My friend, whom I convinced to run for Vice President the day of the deadline, is advocating for both me and him to win in unison, which is something I want to happen. He is VERY well-liked throughout the school and is capable of gathering a huge number of votes for me and him.
D) Think about it. You don't know either one of the candidates. An asian guy or a white girl, who would you vote for? Minorities would vote for the asian guy, and ironically the majority of the school are minorities. And point C actually has turned many of the not-minority votes towards me.
Now, many of these points might seem blunt, but I ran for election last year as ASB Treasurer. I ran against a well-known junior (she's a senior now), who I thought would completely crush me in the polls. Hell, I voted for her too. I somehow ended up winning and realized these points only a year later.
TL, help me out. I'm panicking. If I don't win, I will become a very bitter person like no other. Is there a flaw in my theory? Is there a point I may have missed?
