Jason Husser, associate professor of political science and policy studies and director of the Elon University Poll, offered insight for the story that focused on the importance of black voters in the upcoming presidential election.
As Super Tuesday approaches, North Carolina Public Radio station WUNC has published story on the importance of black voters in North Carolina.
Featured in the story is Jason Husser, associate professor of political science and policy studies and director of the Elon University Poll. Husser’s comments focused on the fact that black voters make up 22 percent of North Carolina’s electorate.
“The North Carolina electoral system in many ways is dependent upon black voters and black voters turning out at high levels,” Husser said. “The Democrats can’t really exist in a current form without African American voters in North Carolina.”
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 Poll is easily recognized as the “poll of record in North Carolina.”
