NEW YORK: Indian-Americans are overwhelmingly supporting Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for president and feel she would be a better leader for furthering India-US relations, according to a survey.



The national online survey of Indian-Americans by Massachusetts-based media publication IndUS Business Journal and its sister publication INDIA New EnglandNews found that 79.43 pct of Indian-Americans would vote for Clinton if elections were held today while 14.89 pct would vote for Republican candidate Donald Trump.



The publication, focused on Indian-American and South Asian entrepreneurs and businesses, conducted the survey during October 21-26 after the third and final presidential debate.



On who would be good for India, 72.46 pct responded Clinton while 18.12 pct said Trump.
