(Vanity) Frank Luntz on Hannity and Colmes says McLame done.
6/06/2007 | 50mm

Posted on 06/06/2007 6:10:37 PM PDT by 50mm

McLame is toast. Luntz said he has never seen a focus audience turn so hostile to a candidate. He also verified that the amnesty bill is costing the GOP big time.

A very accurate pollster.

From Wiki:

February 23, 1962) is a corporate and political consultant and pollster who has worked most notably with the Republican Party in the United States. Luntz's specialty is testing language and finding words that will help his clients sell their product or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate.”[1] Luntz formed The Luntz Research Companies in 1992, and maintains offices in Alexandria, Virginia, and New York City.

This is a great segment. I love listening to Luntz and the way he conducts his polling. It should make the politicians take notice.

If this immigration bill passes, the country will probably be beyond saving. It probably is now but at least the deterioration hasn't been as overtly shoved in our face.

At that point I'd have to say I'd vote third party, or simply not vote. Slim chance I'd vote Republican, very very very slim.

President Hillary? Who cares...stock up on good popcorn and watch it all go down. Flush it all away.

Not everyone. There were 7 or 8 RINOS who helped the 'rats kill an amendment to the amnesty bill that would not have allowed felons to be amnestied.

He covered the Republican debate with a focus group in NH including several strong McLame supporters. He said the focus group went more negative than he had ever seen when McLame was talking up amnesty. The same group loved Romney's anti-amnesty talk.

After the debate he asked the group their opinions on McLame and not a single responder was positive. I heard words like "old", "wandering", "incoherent", unresponsive and other negatives. I believe Luntz also said that the Mclame supporters all changed their minds about supporting McLame after seeing the debate.

One of the best pollsters in the business and an extremely good communicator with use of words and phrases.

I'm shocked no one has tried to sign him up (either that or he is extremely expensive).

He is good as gold in campaigns.

This will be his last term in the Senate.

And in four years he'll be too old to run for the Presidency. Hopefully we won't ever have to see or hear him again.

McCain made me sick every time he used the words “my friends” while squirming to explain his unpopular stances. It reminded me of that obnoxious Hispanic group representatitve (can’t recall his name) who frequently appears on Fox to talk about immigration, and always says “my friend..... my friend....”. I am waiting for someone with huevos to say to him “anyone who aides, abets and encourages illegal immigrants to break the laws of my country is no friend of mine.”

Yes! I remember the Aztlanist you're talking about. I want to throw a brick at the TV every time Hannity has him on. I think he's a spokesman for Vicente Fox or some such nonsense. Always talks about how the US would be an awful place without the "undocumented immigrants."

Every time someone calls you "friend", the next step is usually the rapid insertion of an unvaselined two by four up your rectum. /hyperbole

Good. Glad to know all these years ripping into the maverick hasn’t been wasted. I just hope we have a high profile flame out when he finally accepts it is over.

next up is Rudy. My animosity towards him is trigged more by policy then it is personal. I don’t seek humiliation in his instance, just clarity for the Liberals in the GOP if ANYONE is going to set the course for the party it ain’t going to be them.

And, yes, this amnesty disaster is costing them. Pass it and there will be little reason to give a damn if any Republican serves.

I don’t think so. I did read somewhere where Roger Ailes has demanded positive or no coverage of th amnesty debate. I think he has also mandated positive coverage of the “religion of gore.”

I believe this to be incorrect; he is not done. I believe McCain has been aiming at playing the Ross Perot role of fighting with the Republican candidate, allowing Clinton to win.
