Geeta Chopra makes it clear from the outset: She’s a South Asian woman; she’s also a Republican and a Christian.
She’s hoping her steppingstone is the eponymous “The Geeta Chopra Show,” on Princeton Community Television.
Chopra formerly owned the now-closed Johnny Rockets in the Quaker Bridge Mall, not too far from the community television studio she’s now trying to make a name for herself in.
Not so for all others in the South Asian community — among Asian Americans, while there is a rift between political perspectives, Indian voters are the country’s most Democratic-leaning Asian demographic, according to a survey from polling analysis group FiveThirtyEight.
However, the public access station her shows air on, the nonprofit Princeton Community Television, is facing an uncertain future after the township of Princeton declined to renew the beloved community station’s funding this year.
