Adam Geller, Founder and CEO
Adam Geller is the founder and CEO of the Republican polling firm, National Research Inc.
As one of the pollsters for the Donald J. Trump for President campaign, Adam’s responsibilities included all polling and strategic recommendations 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.
Since the Presidential inauguration, Adam has been one of two lead pollsters for America First Policies and America First Action, the two “officially endorsed” pro-Trump outside groups assisting with the White House’s agenda.
In addition, Adam is known for his polling on behalf of 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 presidential campaign.
Adam has been one of the pollsters for the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) since 2008. In 2018, Adam is polling for the RGA in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut and other states.
Adam is the lead pollster for the Bob Hugin for Senate campaign in New Jersey, against incumbent US Senator Bob Menendez. He is the lead pollster for the Steve Gaynor for Secretary of State race in Arizona. His extensive roster of congressional clients includes House members and challengers throughout the nation.
Adam’s firm recently received the highest grade for accuracy of any Republican polling firm in the 538 blog ranking of all pollsters, conducted by Nate Silver and Harry Enten.
In 2014, one of Adam's clients, Delaware State Treasurer Ken Simpler, became the first successful non-incumbent Republican to win a statewide office in Delaware in twenty years.
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.
In addition to their political work, Adam and his firm conduct survey research, focus and dial groups and strategic 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.
