Vanguard Chapter members of the Society of Fellows are invited to join for the Vanguard Chapter Discussion Reception featuring Matt Mayer as we examine the likely primary and Electoral College results for 2020. He will focus on the conservative path ahead and use historical data, including that of the 2018 midterm elections, as well as the current foreign and public policy agendas, to share insights into political trends of the upcoming election.
Matt A. Mayer is the President of Opportunity Ohio. In his role, he develops strategic policy positions, advises policymakers on a wide-range of issues, designs and evaluates public opinion surveys, creates educational videos and collateral material aimed at key constituencies, engages with all elements of the media, conducts fact-finding missions, and speaks to groups in America and Europe on a variety of topics. Mayer led a nine-state campaign to stop the expansion of Medicaid, and has conducted strategic policy summits for top state and national groups. Opportunity Ohio’s targeted educational videos have received more than 17.7 million views on social media in the last four years. Mayer accurately predicted the outcomes of the presidential elections in 2012 and 2016, as well as the rise of populist parties across Europe.
Mayer has written three books: “The Founding Debate: Where Should the Power Over Our Lives Reside”, “Taxpayers Don’t Stand a Chance: How Battleground Loses No Matter Who Wins (and What to Do About It)”, and “Homeland Security and Federalism: Protecting America from Outside the Beltway” (with Foreword by the Honorable Edwin Meese III). He has written articles for law reviews, public policy journals, and newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, USA Today, and Politico; given testimony to the U.S. Congress, the Texas House and Senate, and the Ohio House and Senate; and appeared on Fox News, C-SPAN, ABC, NBC, and other major media outlets.
