HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 1, 2010 ? Dr. Martin Kifer, assistant professor of political science and director of the High Point University Survey Research Center, will be featured during WFMY?s 11 p.m. newscast and on Rush Radio 94.5 FM at 8:37 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 2. During the broadcasts, he will provide expert commentary on the election results and offer opinions on the implications of the results.
Outcomes of the elections will be especially interesting to follow, considering two election-related polls that Kifer recently oversaw at HPU?s Survey Research Center. The two surveys found North Carolina residents to be leaning Republican, and were equally pessimistic about the state and national economies.
“This has been a very exciting election, and I look forward to examining the consequences of the campaigns for representation here in North Carolina and Washington, DC,” says Kifer “The results will have a big impact on policy as well as the redistricting following this year’s Census.”
The HPU Survey Research Center has conducted two polls over the last month about the election. These results can be found at http://src.highpoint.edu/.
