    A Frank Luntz focus group on President Trump's address to a joint session of Congress erupted when a first generation Latina immigrant said she came to America for an opportunity but people who come to the U.S. now "they have [a] kid and they start collecting money."
  • Convention Delegates Show Lukewarm Support for McCain Reelction (Frank Luntz stunned!)

    When Arizona delegates to the Republican National Convention were asked Thursday how many would not vote for Sen. John McCain in next month's primary, more than half of their hands went up. The question stunned veteran pollster Frank Luntz, who had asked it as a part of a presentation on the last day of the convention on the challenges facing the party - one of which was party unity. "Oh my God," Luntz said. "Where's the chairman? You should have told me this before."

    On "Hannity" tonight, Frank Luntz spoke to a focus group of undecided voters about the Republican National Convention and the most impressive speaker they saw tonight: Donald Trump Jr. They described the son of the Republican presidential nominee as very sincere, charismatic, authentic, articulate and genuine. "The father should take lessons from the son," one man said. "He didn't tear anybody down." Several members said they wish that Trump Sr. was more coolheaded and less controversial like Trump Jr. They acknowledged, however, that a great child is testament to great parenting. "If Donald Trump would act at home the way...

    Florida voters "fed up" with Trump and Clinton speak out CBS News March 18, 2016, 7:05 AM Voters in the key swing state of Florida are sharing their frustration about their options in the 2016 presidential race. A focus group comprised of Republican and Democratic voters who oppose both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump offered a revealing look at the anger toward the front-runners in both parties. Clinton and Trump share the distinction of being among the least-liked candidates. "I would rather not vote than vote for either one of these candidates," one woman told CBS News contributor and Republican...

    Breitbart News recently published a story that quoted The Tampa Bay Times confirming our reporting that Luntz has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to help shape Rubio’s political career. The scandal raised serious questions about Luntz’s impartiality in conducting his Fox News post-debate focus groups, especially in light of a ridiculously pro-Rubio focus group that he conducted right before the Iowa caucus. National Journal picked up the story in a feature entitled “Luntz Plays Favorites With Marco Rubio..”
  • Trump Winning Over Black Women, says Herman Cain

    02/12/2016 1:18:21 PM PST · by Citizen Zed · 27 replies
    According to Cain, the Trump phenomenon can be summed up in three words: "Leadership, fighter and winner." Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate, says the "Trump phenomenon" is so powerful that black women are leaving the Democratic Party to support Trump, a current Republican presidential candidate. Cain might not be that far off base, at least according to political consultant Frank Luntz, who told the online Politico page recently that Trump has a good chance of winning the black vote should he win the Republican nomination. "If he were the Republican nominee, he would get the highest percentage of black...

    First, here are the biggest "losers." Nate Silver.

    "Rubio is John Kennedy to Hillary Clinton's Richard Nixon." It began with the debate where they came out declaring Rubio the winner. Frank Luntz had a 'select group' who mostly said Rubio won and - surprise - Rubio showed up to chat with them. Cruz won tonight and they quickly dismissed him as unelectable, speech was too long, another Huckabee type victory. Trump's loss was a death blow to his campaign, said Krauthammer. They have all this scripted beforehand it seems. So the GOPe's go to guy is Rubio at this point. Gang of 8 membership paying off for him...

    Speaking to a packed audience while introducing the Texas senator Saturday afternoon, Beck gave two main reasons for why Iowa voters should caucus for Cruz on Monday. ... Beck began by noting he had just run into Hollywood actor Richard Dreyfus, who for some reason is traveling around Iowa with Republican pollster Frank Luntz, and explained how he had a great conversation with the liberal star about Dwight Eisenhower. Beck also mentioned that he rode an elevator this morning with a Jeb Bush supporter and how he had a uplifting conversation with him despite not being a huge fan of...

    Fox News used a pollster to host a pro-Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79% focus group after Thursday night's Republican debate, despite the fact that the pollster actually had Rubio as a client. Pollster Frank Luntz got significant airtime to direct a post-debate focus group that unsurprisingly was very favorable to Rubio, the GOP establishment pick in the primary race. "Megyn, you asked probably the toughest question of the debate. You gave the candidates no room to wiggle. You pressed him. And he responded," Luntz gushed to Megyn Kelly, awkwardly referring only to Rubio before even mentioning him by name. "I want...
  • Donald Trump: I have a great relationship with God and great poll numbers, too (VIDEO)

    Today on CNN's State of the Nation, Jake Tapper revisited an old question with Donald Trump. He asked him about his faith and specifically about if he had ever asked forgiveness. By my count this is the third time that Trump has been asked the question. At he Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, back in June: Trump, who told CNN earlier that he is both anti-abortion and anti-same-sex marriage, said people are surprised to learn about his Christian faith. "People are so shocked when they find ... out I am Protestant. I am Presbyterian. And I go to church...

    A focus group of South Carolinians overwhelmingly chose Senator Ted Cruz as the winner of the first presidential debate of 2016 on Thursday night. The group of 26 Republican voters was assembled by pollster Frank Luntz at the request of Fox News Channel. When Luntz asked them, 'Who won this evening?" They unanimously yelled, "Cruz." The highlight of the debate, and the moment that seemed to resonate most with these voters, was the exchange between Cruz and Republican front runner Donald Trump after the real estate mogul renewed his suggestion that Cruz may not be eligible to serve as President...

Cruz’ riposte to Donald Trump on birther theories, even while Cruz led it off by emphasizing that the debate should focus on more important issues. Looks like Cruz was wrong about that, but the focus group’s reaction to his rebuttal went almost literally off the chart: Frank Luntz Focus Group Picks Their Overwhelming Winner of Fox Business GOP Debate Cruz also scored big when he blasted the Obama administration for the capture of 10 US Navy sailors by Iran, and the images gleefully published by Tehran...

It wasn’t even close:Frank Luntz Focus Group Picks Their Overwhelming Winner of Fox Business GOP Debate (Video)I really feel that Ted had his best debate tonight. He’s gone from sounding too polished in the early debates to winning by a long shot tonight.

Cruz, simply put, did the best out of all of the candidates and this focus group proves it.

    Donald Trump's questions about Ted Cruz's citizenship may not be helping him in Iowa. In fact, they may be boosting his rival according to one group of Hawkeye State voters. In his latest focus group, pollster Frank Luntz asked if the fact that Cruz was born in Canada, to an American mother, raised legitimate concerns about his eligibility for president, as Trump has suggested. Only six of 27 participants raised their hands, even though seven identified Trump as their first-choice candidate. One participant said the issue exposes Trump as "unserious," while another called it a "joke." "Just a few months...

    Donald Trump s relentless and withering attacks on his critics are a healing balm for supporters who feel scorned by the governing and media elite pollster and communications adviser Frank Luntz says. In an opinion piece for the Financial Times, Luntz writes that a focus group of 29 Trump supporters helped him understand why the front running GOP presidential candidate's popularity is unlikely to fade with the millions who support him. His support denotes an abiding distrust in — and disrespect for — the governing elite," Luntz writes. "These individuals do not like being told by Washington or Wall Street...

    Outraged by what Donald Trump says? You are not alone. No high-polling presidential candidate in the modern era has so intrepidly drawn the ire of so many within the American electorate. And there remains no end in sight. Yet in rendering one voting bloc utterly apoplectic, he has appealed viscerally to another. The balance of middle ground politics is not, shall we say, Mr Trump’s bailiwick. But America is no longer a middle ground country. We are already scared by our division — and it is getting worse. The simple truth is, the more provocative his language, the deeper and...
