But Geordi had the position of Chief Engineer. Does that not trump Data's position of Second Officer?
Nope. A Second Officer is third in command of the entire ship.
Then why is Geordi in charge of Engineering when Data is also present ("Deja Q," for example)?
Because that's his job. He's in charge when Picard is present, too. Just as Crusher is in charge of Sickbay, even if Picard, Riker or Data are present.
