Majority of Indian-Americans prefer Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump as their choice for the next US President when it comes to issues of immigration, religious freedom and outsourcing, a Silicon Valley-based think tank has said. However, the New York-based billionaire has an edge over Clinton when it comes to India-specific foreign policy of the United States and the fight against terrorism, the Indian-American think-tank said Tuesday quoting its recent survey.

Most of the respondent preferred Clinton over Trump on immigration (59 to 29 perc ent), religious freedom (67 to 27 per cent), outsourcing (52 to 22 per cent) and trust issues (40 to 17 per cent), the Foundation of India and Indian Diaspora Studies (FIIDS-USA.org) said while releasing the results of the survey carried out on Indian-Americans about their opinions on the two US presidential candidates.

Trump faired little better against Clinton over terrorism (48 to 43 per cent) and India specific strategic alliances (47 to 40 per cent) with respect to countries like Pakistan, China, Russia among others.

FIIDS is a US think-tank based working on dialogues and research related socio, economic and geo-political issues and policy matters related to India and the Indian diaspora.

An overwhelming majority of the respondents were naturalized citizens (89 per cent) and male (82 per cent).

      Donald Trump is the narendra modi of USA. And Modiji is similar to Trump in many respects . They have the same level of vision , foresight and intelligence. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;All Hindu Americans must vote for him , otherwise they should be considered as traitors to India.

            It may sound wierd to suggest that Trump would but be the right person for India. This is a parochial perspective though!lt;br/gt;Trump would take a hardline against stan. Clinton would flip flop and be wayward much like Obama.lt;br/gt;She'll be a weak-kneed and a lame duck President.

                      Good news, Trump is another piece of bull sh.it like Modi, he suffered a loss of 190 millions and didn't pay taxes for years together and promises to create more jobs and a faster economic recovery of USA, thanks to US press for exposing Trump, he is down the drain practically, while we fellows voted for a chaiwalla to do the economic miracle for us who in actuality is building museums and temples to win elections and not getting anywhere near his promises of development
