Listen to the news
In this survey released on Wednesday, it has been found that 66 percent of the Indian-American community is in favor of Joe Biden, while only 28 percent of people consider Donald Trump as their leader. Six per cent people did not give any trend. Indiaspora, a non-profit organization of Indian leaders and the Asian American Pacific Islanders, released this joint report on the behavior of Indian-American voters.
It was found in the report that despite recently playing an important role in bilateral relations with India, Trump has not been able to woo Indians in his election campaign. However, Trump has held onto the Indian community as compared to 2016 as Trump had only 16 per cent of the voters in favor at the time, while rival Hillary Clinton was supported by 77 per cent of Indian-Americans.
He also gave a huge donation to political parties
The highest-grossing Indian-Americans have also given heavy donations to both political parties. A quarter of the people say they have donated 3 million dollars to the candidate, political party or any other campaign this year. According to the findings of the survey, the Indian-American community is being aggressively wooed by both sides.
- Science magazine supported Biden as President
America's oldest science magazine, Scientific American, has decided to support Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the country's presidential election. The magazine has never endorsed any candidate in the presidential election in its long history of 175 years.
The editor-in-chief of the magazine, Laura Helmath, said President Trump's administration proved worse for the scientific community than he had anticipated. The magazine posted its support for Biden online on Tuesday. American scientists also said, “Evidence suggests that Trump has basically harmed America and its people because they reject evidence and science.”
