Surveying early polling statistics, Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Data found that "registered Asian Americans lean heavily towards supporting Democratic candidate Joe Biden in 2020, although about 1 in 6 are still persuadable."

Restricting the analysis to those who have decided on a candidate to support in the upcoming Presidential race, research found that 65 percent supported presumptive Democratic candidate Joe Biden, 34 percent supported incumbent President Donald Trump, and 1 percent supported another candidate.

Asian American voters "are poised to have an impact in several battleground states such as Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Texas, where they are considered a potential swing vote."

The Indian-American vote can make significant changes and be an “absolute difference-maker”, particularly in swing states, argued Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, speaking at a recent virtual event, 'An Electorate Coming of Age: Indian Americans for Biden Community Town Hall' hosted by the South Asians for Biden.
