Adam Geller is the founder and CEO of the Republican polling firm, National Research Inc.
He is New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's pollster, having polled for him in 2009, 2013 and for his campaign for President.
In 2014, Adam served as one of the lead pollsters for the Republican Governor's Association (RGA), in a year when the RGA achieved unprecedented fundraising and political success throughout the nation.
Adam's roster of Congressional clients includes Congressman Dave Trott (R-MI); Congressman Tom MacArthur (R-NJ); David Schweikert (R-AZ); Tim Walberg (R-MI); Tom McClintock (R-CA); Leonard Lance (R-NJ) and Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ).
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 addition to his political work, Adam conducts survey research, focus and dial groups and strategic consulting for major corporations and firms in the energy, financial, telecommunications, tobacco, gaming, and retail industries.
In 2015, Adam conducted polling jointly sponsored by the Philadelphia Daily News, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and NBC-10 for the Democratic Mayoral primary in Philadelphia. The poll was the only publicly released survey to accurately predict the margin of victory of Jim Kenney.
Adam released some polling data for the Republican Presidential primary contest in Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina that was also cited by political and media sources for its accuracy, including the influential 538 Blog, founded by Nate Silver.
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.
