Top Republicans recently had a meeting to discuss campaign strategy where they were advised by pollster Frank Luntz.
Luntz is essentially a liberal, but is close friends with some top people in the GOP.
Tucker Carlson blasted the Republicans for listening to Luntz, rather than their own voters.
Here’s a partial transcript, via Breitbart News:
Just this week, in fact, the National Republican Congressional Committee, the NRCC invited Luntz to Florida for its so-called Policy Summit where he was asked to weigh in on the hot topics.
Luntz’s job was to tell Republicans, officeholders, people with power, how to think about the most important issues of the day. And we didn’t hear the presentation, but there’s no doubt it was compelling. Frank Luntz is a smooth salesman. That’s why he has been around for a while.
The problem with Frank Luntz is that his views, his personal views are very different from those of your average Republican voter. Frank Luntz is a conventional liberal. His main clients are left-wing corporations like Google.
When Frank Luntz gives advice to congressional Republicans, he has got Google’s perspective in mind. That’s a huge problem. We wanted to talk to Luntz about all of this on the show tonight. Nothing personal, but it’s interesting, and it’s important. So we texted him an invitation this morning, but he did not respond. That’s odd, since we’ve known him well for a long time.
In 2019, for example, he tweeted us this greeting, which tells you a lot about the kind of person Frank Luntz is, quote, “This Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks to the men and women of the FBI, the CIA and the Intel Services.” That’s literally what the message says, it’s on the screen.

Republicans had better be listening.
2022 is right around the corner and Republican voters are expecting the party to be ready to take back the House.
