The media outlet was looking at the significance of the president’s visit to the city, with a planned stop at N.C. A&T State University to visit with students and faculty and to deliver remarks.

Husser, who is the director of the Elon University Poll, told the outlet that he expects Biden to point to local announcements like the aviation manufacturer Boom Supersonic’s decision to locate its plant at the Piedmont-Triad International Airport and Toyota’s decision to build an expansive¬† electric batter plant south of Greensboro.

“It’s also a meaningful symbol that Greensboro is doing the types of things that the administration was hoping to see happen in the economy,” Husser said.¬†“The president is hoping to be able to say his agenda is working despite many Americans feeling like the economy is not really where they wanted it to be when he came into the office.”
