Robinson, a well-regarded Ph.D. scientist, educator, businessman and 38-year Oregon resident, served on the faculty of the University of California-San Diego, was president at the Linus Pauling Institute and now is head of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine.

And he sees strong enthusiasm for the president, because they recognize Trump is advancing the conservative agenda, including confirming constitutional judges, bolstering the economy, improving international relations and defending religious liberty.
