Jason Husser, associate professor of political science and policy studies and director of the Elon University Poll, offered insight for the story about how North Carolina could play a role in President Donald Trump's re-election efforts.
Spectrum News featured Jason Husser, associate professor of political science and policy studies, in a recent story about President Donald Trump’s focus on North Carolina as the 2020 presidential election approaches.
In the story, “Trump campaign devotes attention to North Carolina as re-election efforts ramp up,” reporter Kevin Frey discusses the president’s decision to rally in North Carolina, instead of in other battleground states, the day before the Super Tuesday primaries and how that could be a sign of the state’s importance in the upcoming election.
Husser, who is also director of the Elon University Poll, explained that North Carolina could play a key role in helping a presidential candidate get the 270 electoral votes necessary to win the election.
“While there are some paths to the White House and paths to 270 votes for the Trump campaign without [winning] North Carolina, it gets really dicey,” Husser said.
