Indian Americans Stir Blue Wave in Deep Red Texas. 72% for Biden, 22% for tRump

Indian Americans Stir Blue Wave in Deep Red Texas
Trump’s touted his rallies with India’s leader, but the Indian American community is leaning left—and nowhere like in Texas.

It would have been nearly unthinkable to see Texas in the toss-up column just four years ago. But less than a week out from Election Day, pollsters see President Donald Trump and his rival Joe Biden in a dead heat, and the Biden campaign’s hopes are riding on a growing community of 160,000 Indian American voters in the Lone Star State to help turn the tide.

“Texas might be turning purple,” said Devesh Kapur, the director of Asia programs at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. “You see in that area there are a lot of Asian Americans, not just Indian Americans but other Asian Americans. That’s the group that will make or break it.”

Indeed, there are few other immigrant groups that have done more to remake the U.S. electorate. Around two-thirds of Indian Americans came to the United States in the past 20 years—a higher rate than any immigrant community other than Mexican Americans. The Indian American community is by no means a monolith, but polls show a majority are leaning blue.

Despite Trump touting close ties with India—hosting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in front of 50,000 fans in a Houston football stadium last year—polls show that Indian Americans are turning decisively to the left, alienated by the Republican Party’s divisive rhetoric toward immigrants and minority groups. According to a recent YouGov poll in partnership with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Pennsylvania, 72 percent of registered Indian American voters plan to support Biden, compared with just 22 percent for Trump.

Trump Jr: 'Well, why aren't they talking about deaths? Oh, oh, because the number is almost nothing

Appearing on Laura Ingraham's Fox News show Thursday night, Donald Trump Jr. was asked about Dr. Sanjay Gupta's recommendation that anyone who attends a campaign rally for the President self-quarantine for two weeks.

He responded this way (bolding is mine):
"I mean, give me a break, Laura, the reality is this ... if you look, I put it up on my Instagram a couple days ago, because I went through the CDC data because I kept hearing about new infections, but I was like, 'Well, why aren't they talking about deaths?' Oh, oh, because the number is almost nothing."

The number is 1,004. As in, 1,004 Americans died of coronavirus on Thursday. That's 1,004 people with families, friends and colleagues who will never get to talk to them, hug them or see them ever again.


Donald Trump Jr. says COVID deaths 'are almost nothing' and 'we've gotten control of the thing' on the day nearly 1,000 Americans died from the virus
The president's oldest son was speaking to Fox News' Laura Ingraham Thursday
Daily deaths remain low compared the counts seen in the spring, but are now creeping toward 1,000 a day, with 974 fatalities recorded Thursday
994 Americans died on Wednesday; 985 fatalities were reported Tuesday
According to data through October 28, the seven-day rolling average for daily new deaths rose over the past two weeks from 724 to 787
More than 8 million Americans have tested positive; 228, 647 have died
'Why aren't they talking about deaths... because the numbers are almost nothing', Don Jr. said, directing viewers to his Instagram account to look at them

The pastor thought Trump was 'evil.' So he quit his conservative church

It was going to be a hard day. Keith Mannes prayed he was doing right. He got into his car and drove past harvested cornfields and "Keep America Great!" signs. He parked, walked a few steps and opened the door to his church.

A pastor for decades, he stood before a few dozen congregants. He knew them all, their histories, struggles and joys. That is the way of things here. He told them he loved them and asked for forgiveness. But he couldn't go on as before. Most church members supported President Trump, he said, and Mannes could no longer hide his repulsion for the man he considered incompatible with Christianity.

“I am to follow the call of my heart to speak into the world as small as my voice may be,” said the 59-year-old lifelong Republican. It was a voice, he said, that was too controversial, too divisive, for this small house of God. He gave his two weeks' notice and quit East Saugatuck Church.

In this conservative region of western Michigan, a GOP stronghold where pastors and party have long united as one, Mannes' decision rippled through this city of 33,000 in a battleground state ahead of a bitter presidential election.

I felt calm as I cast this vote. A sense of peace blanketed the moment. When historians look at this election, they will describe how the people of the United States of America began clawing their way back.
