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

    09/28/2016 5:36:50 AM PDT · by MNDude · 21 replies
    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...

    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 Partys nomination for president, pollster Frank Luntz offered one huge prediction. While many suggested Trumps 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.

"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...

    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...

    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...

    1. Conservatives care most about the size of government. 2. Conservatives want to deport all illegal immigrants. 3. They worship Wall Street 4. Conservatives want to slash Social Security and Medicare. 5. Conservatives don't care about inequality. So, if everyone is concerned about the income gap, what's the big difference between left and right? It's the difference between opportunity and outcome. Conservatives want to increase opportunity, giving everyone the freedom and tools to prosper, so that the poor may someday become rich. Liberals want to redistribute income, making the rich - quite simply - less rich.

Luntz analyzes this victory and others in his new book Win: The Key Principles to Take Your Business from Ordinary to Extraordinary As a longtime media strategist, Luntz has helped craft many sound bites and political phrases during his career, from "death tax" to the "Contract with America." In Win, Luntz argues that careful messaging is as essential to...

    The United States has just witnessed its third straight rubber band election.

The government Americans seek is simpler, more efficient and more accountable; one that takes on less but does better; one that executes the essential and eschews the excessive. First, a warning to both sides. Republicans, for their part, must realize that the voters have given them a reprieve, not an endorsement.

    National Right to Work ^ | Novemeber 1, 2010 | Press Release
    Despite DC union officials agenda, union membership think stimulus plan and healthcare bills were failures, and oppose keeping Pelosi as Speaker Washington, DC (November 1, 2010) A nationwide poll of 760 union members from both the private and government sector conducted last week demonstrates a staggering disconnect between union members and the national union officials who claim to represent them. The scientific survey was conducted October 26-28 by long time pollster Frank Luntz. The poll asked various questions regarding their union leadership and the 2010 midterm elections. The poll found that 60 percent of union members oppose their union...

    ....and when its over at least half of America is gunna be pretty angry. So said pollster Frank Luntz last night on Sean Hannitys show on Fox. Luntzs live focus groups are always pretty fun, but this one sets a new standard that will be hard to top or will it? This is well worth the watch. Its only two minutes, but its 120 seconds of fun, fun, fun as people in Florida got at it on Obama, Pelosi, the Republicans and whether orange juice really does deliver vitamin C. OK, not the last part, but everything else is...

Since then, gun control supporters have cited the poll in numerous newspaper editorials, opinion columns, and letters to editors, allattacking NRAs opposition to gun control.Recently, however, Bloombergs...

    The Sphere ^ | Jan. 20, 2010 | Frank Luntz
    Special to Sphere (Jan. 20) It doesn't take a rocket scientist or a pollster to know that Americans are not happy with Washington. The honeymoon that greeted President Obama a year ago today has degenerated into hypercriticism, deep anxiety and downright anger. That may sound more like a high-profile Hollywood divorce than a political analysis, yet in some ways that's exactly what Americans are going through right now. Make no mistake: Americans were giddy about getting rid of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, but they are clearly suffering from buyer's remorse a year later. The seeds of Obama's...

    ust about every election night, Republican pollster Frank Luntz assembles a focus group of likely voters to help predict election results. Tonight you can see Luntz interview an assembly of Massachusetts voters on Fox at 9:10 p.m. EST. But you probably wont see all the work that went into it. As of late this afternoon, Luntz was still scrambling to balance his focus group with supporters of Democrat Martha Coakley. I just lost another one, Luntz growled over his cell phone from a hotel ballroom at Logan Airport. In the last 24 hours, six Coakley voters have dropped out. By...

    As the former leader of the free world, Jimmy Carter deserves our respect. As a political analyst - attributing racism to the anger at President Obama - he is irresponsibly inaccurate. Obama's popularity hasn't tumbled because he's black. It's tumbled because he has come to represent Washington instead of those who sent him there. I know this because of a 6,400-person interview survey I conducted for my new book "What Americans Really Want ... Really." I sat down to write this book, conduct the poll and insisted that the second "really" be included in the title because I was fed...
