The White House has confirmed that President Barack Obama will visit the Triangle next Wednesday to promote the jobs plan he announced in last night's speech. No details yet on where he'll appear.
The president's visit coincides with his lowest poll numbers in North Carolina since last fall, according to Public Policy Polling. Numbers out this afternoon show only 1 out of 3 independent voters approves of his job performance, and only 3 out of 4 Democrats. Pollster Tom Jensen says Obama would likely lose to either Perry or Romney if the election were held today.
