Stanley Bernard "Stan" Greenberg (born May 10, 1945) is a leading Democratic pollster and political strategist. He is a founding partner at Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research (GQR), a Washington D.C. headquartered political research and campaign company, that is closely affiliated with the Democratic Party. Stan Greenberg has advised the campaigns of Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and John Kerry, as well as hundreds of other candidates and organizations. Greenberg is Jewish.
In May 2010 Greenberg was linked to a controversy involving White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. As a House member, Emanuel had lived for five years in a rent-free D.C. apartment jointly owned by Greenberg's wife, Democratic House member Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, and Greenberg. During this time, Emanuel was chairman of a committee that awarded large polling contracts to Greenberg's firm.
The Republican Party, as Greenberg describes it, is “a rural, white, married, evangelical, religious party in a country that’s becoming less married, more secular, more urban.” The “furious counter-revolution” the party has waged for a decade to keep the “new American majority” from governing, he said, has “alienated the Republican Party from the country.” [...] A “shattering loss” for the Republicans next year could lead to the party’s “embrace of immigration and the country’s diversity,” “acceptance of the sexual revolution” and calls to “invest in infrastructure, education and the military.”
