[Python-Dev] why is not 64-bit installer the default download link for Windows?

If one goes to httWhps://www.python.org/downloads
<https://www.python.org/downloads> from a Windows browser, the default
download URL is for the 32-bit installer instead of the 64-bit one.
I wonder why is this still the case?
Shouldn't we encourage new Windows users (who may not even know the
distinction between the two architectures) to use the 64-bit version of
Python, since most likely they can?
If this is not the correct forum for this, please let me know where I can
direct my question/feature request, thanks.
