â€œWe are Tamils for Obama,â€ said a press spokesman for this Tamil American organization, â€œso people probably expect our polling to be one-sided. Still, we tried to do a fair sampling of Tamil American opinions and intentions. â€œ
Seven thousand seven hundred and thirty eight Tamil Americans participated in this poll.
â€œHere are the results our Tamil American friends told us online,â€ said the spokesman.
â€œIn the poll, President Obama triumphed easily. He won by 95% to 5% for his opponent.
â€œWhen we asked on what they based their voting choice, by far the greatest number of our respondents said they felt that Obama will support Tamil causes,â€ said this spokesman. â€œ99.75% checked this reason for supporting Obama.â€
The second-most checked consideration was â€œThis candidate will effectively manage the US economyâ€ with 0 1 %.
â€œOf course, â€œsaid the spokesman, â€œwe took precautions to keep anyone from voting repeatedly and to make sure we got one vote from each individual person.â€
