Frank Luntz – or Frank “Dunce” as I like to call him – has always been a fraud.
Anyone who pays any attention whatsoever to politics has always known this – yet, even so, the establishment GOP embraces him and is stupid and useless “focus groups.”
So much so, that GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarty was actually LIVING with Dunce in D.C. and he had him headline a recent GOP conference to help the GOP learn how to expand their base.
Mind you, Trump wasn’t invited to this “conference.” I’m telling you, the GOP is utterly useless and 95% of them need to go.
We all found out that Frank Luntz was a fraud when his TDS kicked in back in 2016, but it was confirmed when the contents of Hunter’s laptop was revealed, and there was an email to Hunter from Frank, bellyaching that he wasn’t getting “respect” from Joe Biden after all he’d done to help him with his polls and whatnot.
But now, the final nail has just been driven into Frank Dunce’s career, thanks to an employee whistleblower who just blew the lid off of Frank and called out everything he’s doing as a total “fraud.”
The story appeared in Salon – which is a left-leaning site, but don’t let that deter you – it’s being widely reported everywhere. Salon reported that Republican pollster and Kevin McCarthy’s friend-slash-roommate Frank Luntz isn’t afraid of boasting about his personal achievements. “Dr. Frank I. Luntz is one of the most honored communication professionals in America today,” reads a biography on his website. But some of his former employees tell a remarkably different story.
Chris Ingram, a former senior vice president at the Luntz Research Company who worked at the company from 1997 through the early 2000s, told Salon that Luntz’s claim to deliver objective data is a “total shtick and a scam.”

Ingram described observing Luntz trying to manipulate focus groups that used “dial testing,” in which participants spin a small handheld device, yielding real-time results in response to questions asked by the presenter. “Frank, when he would be hired by clients, whether they would be corporate or political, would sit in that room yelling, ‘Keep turning the dials! Keep turning the dials!'” Ingram told Salon in a phone interview. Luntz’s primary concern, Ingram said, was results that would yield more “compelling” data to be “present[ed] to the client.”
Ingram said that Luntz does not work as an “impartial” or honest survey researcher but is better described as a pay-for-play pawn in Washington. In 1997, the American Association for Public Opinion Research largely agreed with Ingram’s current analysis, finding after a 14-month investigation that Luntz had “violated the Association’s Code of Professional Ethics and Practices.”
Luntz’s “keep turning the dials” approach, Ingram said, is “clearly not the type of stuff that legitimate public opinion and survey researchers employ,” adding that this was just one of many examples. He described additional ways Luntz would deceive viewers and media companies with such tactics, including screening and selecting participants in a manner that Ingram called “quite frankly bullshit.”
“The clowns at MSNBC didn’t have a clue about how the focus groups or panels worked, or what Frank was doing,” Ingram said. “The actions were basically contrived: He screened out anybody that isn’t going to give the viewers the opinion that Frank, on behalf of his client, is looking for. Somehow, he is able to bullshit people.”
So, we have a fraud and a traitor who. plays. both sides, being welcomed into the GOP by the leadership in order to help the party “move n a new direction.”
The GOP is turning to the likes of this fraud – Frank Dunce – to reshape the party – not President Trump.
That should tell you all you need to know about the GOP and what they likely did to help remove Trump from office.
Both Frank Luntz and the GOP leadership and many others – must be purged from this party or we’ll never win anything again.
