Pollster extraordinaire Adam Geller, president of National Research, Inc., Holmdel, has signed on with America First Action PAC and America First Policies, according to a report at Washington Examiner.
The news in June that Geller had been “fired” by the Trump campaign was fake. Joining the Super PAC was always the plan. The FEC mandated “cooling off period” before a professional can move between a campaign and a PAC supporting the same candidate recently expired.
The America First groups raised $17 million in the first half of 2019 and hope to raise over $300 million, according to the Washington Examiner report.
Geller and his colleagues came up with the method of identifying “hidden Trump supporters,” voters who would not admit to supporting Donald Trump, during the 2016 campaign. Their work convinced the campaign to invest in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan, states that so-called independent polls had going strongly for Hillary Clinton.
