DNA-India, Posted: Nov 04, 2008

An overwhelming 81 percent of Indian Americans will vote for Democratic presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama, while a mere 19 percent will support the Republican nominee Sen. John McCain, an opinion poll suggests, according to DNA-India.

The informal poll of Indian American voters was done by Bridging Nations, a non-partisan, non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C.

Of the 40 percent of the respondents who were registered as independents, 67 percent said they would vote for Obama, while the rest were planning to vote for John McCain.

The Indian American community has grown from 1.6 million people in 2000 to over 2.3 million in 2005, according to the U.S. Census Bureau a growth rate of 38 percent.It is one of the highest amongst U.S. ethnic populations.

The prospect of an Indian American figuring in the presidential elections appeared briefly when Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindals name surfaced as a possible running mate to Senator McCain.
