Jason Husser, associate professor of political science and policy studies and director of the Elon University Poll, offered his insights about ongoing gerrymandering litigation in North Carolina.
A broadcast news story by Greensboro, North Carolina, CBS station WFMY News 2 featured insights from Jason Husser, associate professor of political science and policy studies and director of the Elon University Poll.
The story, "NC Judges to Decide Whether Partisan Bias Along District Lines Has Any Room In Our State's Constitution," focuses on ongoing litigation involving the practice of gerrymandering in North Carolina and whether the state's legislative district lines have been drawn to benefit one party over another.
Husser discussed the legal proceedings, as well as questions that will be answered as the state Supreme Court comes to a decision on the matter.
Husser said, “None of these are perfect, but the fight is, should we allow overt, or at least, barely covert political considerations going on in redistricting?”

As director of the Elon Poll, Husser and his staff conduct regional and statewide surveys on a wide range of topics important to the people of North Carolina and other southern states. Information from these polls is shared with media, citizens and public officials to facilitate informed public policy making through the better understanding of citizens’ opinions and attitudes. By conducting several public opinion surveys annually, the Elon University Poll is easily recognized as the “poll of record in North Carolina.”
