The Donald Trump and Joe Biden campaigns have both made determined efforts to reach out to the Indian American voter. The Indian American vote now matters since the community has a potential swing presence in some of the battleground states
On October 7, Democratic Party’s Kamala Harris will be participating in the Vice Presidential debate against her opponent, the incumbent and Republican candidate, Mike Pence. This is the highest position that a person of Indian origin has so far aspired to in the United States.
The visible presence of Indian Americans has changed dramatically over the past two decades. Their number, according to U.S. Census data, is now estimated to be around 4.1 million, rising to 4.5 million if mixed heritage is also included. This is a two-fold rise since 2000. This year 1.8 million are eligible to vote.
