Frank Luntz is the Matthew Hooton of America, if Matthew Hooton was successful and brilliant. Luntz is the Machiavellian Black Prince of American politics, he who advised the oil industry in the 90s to pretend the science on climate change wasn’t settled.
Ever since as a pollster he has an uncanny understanding of the real America. The under educated, bigoted, God fearing, suburban American who every President must court to win the White House.
In short, Luntz is the mustard when it comes to dirty dead’s done dirt cheap in American politics.
I’ve always loved how Luntz dresses down in cheap suits so he never intimidated his WalMart electorate.
So when Luntz denounces Trump 2024, it’s worth listening…
One of the world’s top pollsters Frank Luntz, who has advised multiple Republican presidents, says Donald Trump will never again lead the United States.
In an exclusive interview with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age after he spoke at the Conservative Party conference in the UK, Luntz said even if Trump nominated and the Democrats ran a poor candidate, the 45th president would never again prevail at the ballot box.
“He will not win,” Luntz said. “If Trump runs again he will be nominated by the Republicans, but he will never be elected president because there are too many people who hate him.
“Trump is the most popular Republican by far, but he can’t win a general election because in the end politics is about persona as much as it is about policy, and his persona is unacceptable to too many people.”
…Luntz’s argument is that Trump 2024 is a search for revenge and he doesn’t believe the American people will vote for vengeance.
Which seems remarkably charitable considering what we know about Americans.
The danger seems to be the midterms where Biden’s mishandling of the Afghanistan pull out and Democratic infighting over their Omni bill are hurting Democrat chances.
What’s most concerning is Trump campaigning on behalf of little known functional roles at electoral stations. He is championing candidates who would turn any contested election to the House of Representatives where Trump believes Republicans would have a majority.
It’s like Trump is building an apparatus that will refer contested results to the House in order to steal the 2024 election.
Like it’s really obvious that’s what he’s doing.
If Trump runs and wins it will be the beginning of the end for America.
