Adam Geller, Founder and CEO
Adam Geller is the founder and CEO of the Republican polling firm, National Research Inc.
In 2016, Adam was one of the pollsters for the Donald J. Trump for President campaign. His responsibilities included all polling and data-based strategic advice for the key Rust Belt states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa – the states that, along with Pennsylvania, completely shattered the “Blue Wall” for Democrats and delivered President Trump’s victory.
Adam will resume his role as a pollster for the President’s re-election campaign.
In addition to his work for the President, Adam is known for his polling on behalf of former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Adam was the lead pollster for Christie’s 2009 upset victory over Jon Corzine, his 2013 re-election victory over Barbara Buono, and for Christie’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Adam has served as a longtime pollster for the Republican Governor’s Association, the Republican National Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Committee. He has a long roster of federal, state and local elected officials and candidates throughout the nation. A link to his full client list appears below.
Adam’s firm recently received the highest grade for accuracy of any Republican polling firm in the 538 Blog’s ranking of all pollsters, conducted by Nate Silver and Harry Enten.
In 2011, Adam was asked to conduct a first-of-its-kind nationwide poll of more than 800 entrepreneurs, the results of which formed the basis of the book, “Where the Jobs Are: Entrepreneurship and the Soul of the American Economy,” by John Dearie and Courtney Geduldig, published in 2013.
Beyond political work, Adam and his firm conduct survey research and consulting for major corporations and Fortune 500 firms in the energy, financial, telecommunications, tobacco, insurance, gaming, and retail industries.
Adam received his Bachelor’s Degree from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and his Master’s Degree from the University of Delaware.
