What President Trump understands that Democrats don’t

Adam Geller, President of National Research, addresses Monmouth County Republicans.

As a practitioner of public opinion polling, I’ve studied, poked and analyzed opinions for more than 25 years. I’ve learned and grown to appreciate how fickle and malleable opinions can be. I’ve also come to understand through opinion research, why President Trump is playing a winning hand going into 2020 and why he is better positioned for victory than you might think.

Mr. Trump isn’t playing the opinion game. He is playing on a different field. He is playing on beliefs and values. And his opponents are all too happy to assist him.

Opinions can change, and they often do. Beliefs don’t change. We can change our opinion about a candidate, or a restaurant, or a TV series. But we don’t change our fundamental values. We don’t change our beliefs. Opinions are ephemeral. Beliefs are unwavering.

Adam Geller joins pro-Trump Super PAC

Adam Geller

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.

Pezzullo: Bernie’s Democratic Socialism Can’t Work

Rich Pezzullo

I watched Bernie define Democrat Socialism, and after reflecting on his words, I consider him and his ideas dangerous.  The former mayor of Burlington is ill equipped to deliver on his vision of recreating “the economy and government” in a manner that he considers fair.

 

Bernie made his goals clear, but nobody wants to really think about what he’s saying. In Bernie’s words, he wants to use Democracy to create a government “that works for all of us and a political system that is based on one person, one vote.”

Cory Booker Owes the LGBTQ Community an Answer about Sin

By Thomas DeSeno

Despite Article 6, Clause 3 of the Constitution outlawing religious tests for public office, Democrats have been inquiring about the religious beliefs of government appointees.

This modern Democrat “Star Chamber” has revealed itself in several recent incidents.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D., California) told Catholic federal court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, “When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern…”.

Then came the double teaming of federal Court nominee Brian Buesher by Senators Kamala Harris (D., California) and Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii).  They questioned Buesher about various Catholic beliefs, followed by Hirono requesting he quit the Catholic fraternity Knights of Columbus before being sworn; a clear violation of his Constitutional rights. Harris and Hirono were formally rebuked by the entire Senate for this religious inquisition.

Gopal: The courts should decide if NJ can keep Trump off the ballot if he doesn’t release tax returns

By Art Gallagher

Senator Vin Gopal

State Senator Vin Gopal said it would be up to the courts to decide if New Jersey has the right to keep a presidential candidate, President Trump or any other candidate, off the ballot in the state if they do not disclose five years of tax returns, as required by legislation he voted in favor of last week, should the bill pass in the Assembly and be signed by Governor Phil. Murphy.

Gopal reached out to object to MMM’s coverage of his vote on the bill, S119,which would also prohibit Electoral College electors from voting for a candidate who did not disclose their tax returns, regardless of how voters cast their ballots.  He objected to the use of the phrase “fellow cronies” in describing his relationships with the other Democrat senators who passed the bill last week.  He said I was inferring that he was corrupt for not wanting the the disclosure requirement to apply to him and other NJ elected officials and that I was implying that his cash purchase of his Tinton Falls office building was nefarious.

Hypocrites Gopal, Downey and Houghtaling vote to keep Trump off the 2020 ballot

Sen Vin Gopal, Assemblyman Eric Houghtaling and Assemblywoman Joann Downey

Senator Vin Gopal voted with his Trenton Democrat cronies last week in voting in favor of legislation that would keep candidates for President and Vice President off the ballot in New Jersey unless they disclose five years of tax returns .  Gopal also voted against an amendment to the bill that would have it apply to himself and his fellow legislators and the governor.

Assembly Members Joann Downey and Eric Houghtaling voted in favor of identical legislation—and against the amendment to have the bill apply to themselves—in 2017.
