Kellyanne Elizabeth Conway is currently serving as Counselor to President Donald Trump, and is the founder and former president of the polling company inc./WomanTrend, a privately-held, woman-owned corporation currently in its 21st year of operation.
Kellyanne recently served as campaign manager to the Trump-Pence presidential campaign, becoming the first woman to successfully manage a presidential campaign. She is one of the most quoted and noted pollsters on the national scene, having provided commentary on over 1,500 television shows on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, HBO, Comedy Central, MTV, and the Fox News Channel, and numerous radio shows and print stories.
Throughout her multiple decades in market research, Kellyanne has provided primary research and advice for clients in all 50 states and has directed hundreds of demographic and attitudinal survey projects for statewide and congressional political races, trade associations, and Fortune 100 companies. Kellyanne is a professionally trained moderator who has directed more than 300 focus groups.

In what was a poor year for Republican polling, she and her team were among the few on the GOP side to predict the outcomes of major races in 2012. In 2014, all of their general election candidates won. The RNC tasked Kellyanne with helping to defeat the so-called “War on Women.”
