  • Frank Luntz, former Trump hater: ‘I owe Donald Trump an apology’

    02/01/2018 3:38:20 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 80 replies ^ | Cheryl K Chumley
    *snip* From Luntz, on Twitter: “Tonight, I owe Donald Trump an apology. Tonight, I was moved and inspired. Tonight, I have hope and faith in America again. It may go away tomorrow. But tonight, America is great again. #SOTU.” The fawning didn’t stop there. “Even in foreign policy and national security,” Luntz wrote in a separate tweet, “this speech [is] a perfect blend of strength and empathy. These heroic stories break our hearts, but sturdy our resolve. This is the Trump his voters wanted him to be. #SOTU.” And this: ‘This speech represents the presidential performance that Trump observers have...

    MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman...

"You fascist [expletive expletive]," Luntz said the protester yelled at him. [video at link]
  • Frank Luntz: Obama on a ‘FU Tour,’ Trying to ‘Settle Scores’ With Republicans

    01/02/2017 12:31:08 PM PST · by Rockitz · 47 replies ^ | 2 January 2017 | Breitbart TV
    Over the weekend, pollster Frank Luntz blasted President Barack Obama during a Fox News appearance, accusing the president of “trying to settle scores before he leaves.” Luntz compared Obama’s final days as president to President-elect Donald Trump’s “thank you” tour, calling it a “FU tour.” “If Trump did this great tour of the country, they called it a victory tour or thank you tour, Obama seems to be doing a… uh… trying to figure out the right language so I don’t get fined by the FCC, a FU tour. I guess that’s the best way to put it,” Luntz said.
  • Trump Could Create Long Term Majority – And Change Politics as We Know It

    Top pollster Frank Luntz – who was not a Trump supporter – told Sean Hannity tonight that Trump could create a permanent Republican majority. Frank Luntz: I did not think Trump had a good chance. But I thought he was absolutely viable because of what he said and how he said it… If Trump can keep this majority of these new voters who have never voted Republican before and bring back some of those Republicans from the suburbs who voted for Clinton but voted Republican all the way down the line this is a long term majority. He has a...

    As the Clinton campaign reels from the fallout over FBI Director James Comey's Friday afternoon announcement  the criminal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been reopened, questions about how this will affect her poll numbers and the race for the White House are front and center. There are just 10 days to go before Election Day and Clinton has lost significant ground in battleground states to Trump in recent days. With recent developments and more to come as the FBI combs through thousands of new documents and mutliple devices, longtime pollster Frank Luntz makes an observation that...

    The final presidential debate of the 2016 presidential election is over and according to pollster Frank Luntz and his focus group, Trump was the winner of tonight's debate. That being said, it was close. href="">#DebateNight— Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) October 20, 2016 The other winner of the night is moderator Chris Wallace, who did an excellent job managing the candidates, asking questions and staying out of the debate as a contestant.

    FOX ^ | October 17, 2016 | staff
    Trump must present a "forensic audit" of the federal budget. Trump should announce who he would appoint to key positions like secretary of state and secretary of defense. Number three, he needs to talk about Hillary Clinton in terms of more than three decades in Washington, D.C. Did you get the change you want? Did you get the change you deserve? Fourth ... he must pivot away from allegations of sexual misconduct. "He's not winning when he's defending. He needs to move off of that." Lastly, Luntz said, he needs to present himself as the candidate of change, the one...

    Turnaround, or just 'better than expected?' I’ll have more on “the tape” later today. Until then, suffice it to say that - like pollster Frank Luntz - I spent the weekend assuming it was all over for Donald Trump. After all, he’s a candidate who was just barely holding on to his place in the polls as it was. His remarks, however much his supporters might not care about them, delivered a severe blow precisely to his weakest spot. According to Luntz and his focus group, last night’s debate went a long way toward undoing that damage. As he put...

    Republican pollster Frank Luntz said Donald Trump is back in the game after a strong performance at Sunday night's debate. "I may have made a mistake in writing off Trump," Luntz tweeted after the second presidential debate. "After talking with voters tonight, he's back in this race." Sunday's debate came at the tail end of the most tumultuous weekend of the Republican presidential nominee's campaign so far. Trump landed in hot water on Friday when a leaked recording showed him boasting about trying to sleep with a married woman and remarking that he could "grab" women "by the p---y" because...

  • Luntz Focus Group Overwhelmingly Turned Off By Trump at GOP Debate (Flashback)

    In a live post-debate "Kelly File," Frank Luntz talked to a focus group of Republican voters. The group expressed their dissatisfaction with the performance of Donald Trump. Overall, Luntz noted that the majority of the group had a positive view of Trump going in, but that was not the case by the end of the two-hour debate. Luntz said that his reaction meters showed a very negative response to Trump refusing to rule out a third-party run. When asked which candidates surprised them, the voters pointed to Mike Huckabee and Ben Carson.

    Republican pollster Frank Luntz thinks birtherism is just "noise" and will have no impact on the presidential election. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile thinks he's wrong and that it will activate voters -- and not just African-Americans. Luntz and Brazile made their comments in separate interviews Monday with 13 Action News. Luntz is in Las Vegas to speak to a convention and to meet with various gaming clients. He does work for the Sands, Wynn Resorts and MGM Resorts. Brazile is here because Nevada is a battleground state and she is meeting with labor officials and activists. Luntz talked...
  • 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."

    As Donald Trump wrapped up the GOP Convention Thursday night by accepting the Republican Party’s nomination for president, pollster Frank Luntz offered one huge prediction. While many suggested Trump’s speech was overly negative and maybe hurtful, Luntz said the address could be enough to catapult the billionaire businessman beyond his opponent Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. “Mark my words,” the Republican pollster tweeted.
