Luntz: We’re gunna have one hell of an election I promise you that ….

and when it’s over at least half of America is gunna be pretty angry. So said pollster Frank Luntz last night on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox. Luntz’s 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. It’s 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 on the table.

Just to set this clip up, Luntz, the most entertaining pollster in America, asks his group if they are disappointed in Obama and the Democrat’s performance and, well, it’s off to the races. I wish I could pull out the teaser bite, but it’s really a lot of shouting, at each other but it’s demonstrative of what’s going on. The kicker line is at the end by Luntz, but the catalyst is all Mr Uniter himself. Change!


One hell of an election indeed.

    Does anyone else see the irony that one woman said we can't blame one man, that's all we do, we can't blame one man (speaking of Obama) and then they blame Bush for the whole problem?

    The kind of people who voted for Obama are always angry, have always been angry and will always be angry. Now they're getting even nastier as the tide appears to be turning against Barry.

    United we stand, divided we fall!  Every person there has a different angle- no taxes, too much taxes, free money, "if I take care of him, he's gonna take care of me"…  If we all got hitched up to pull the wagon fairly, then we'd all be pretty pissed off right now…  Many believe the best is yet to come…

    I noticed the same thing that Lynn mentioned concerning the double standards of Obama supporters in Luntz's focus group.  Obama defenders claim that you can't blame one man for the nation's problems, unless of course that one man is GW Bush.

    Obama supporters — those bitter clingers — seem to be a bit myopic.  Did she really bring up his "hour-glass"?  What is this?  "Days of Our Lives"?

    Hi Jim:

    This Free Republic posted thread of your blog entry not only had gotten posts, but A LOT of posts, at 52 postings. There is a lot of anger in the nation, but at the course of the direction this country is heading. It will not surprise me Jim if come November 2, 2010, if there be A LOT OF LONG LINES at the polling places, that will show the frustration of people bigtime. The folks in the above videos I sense KNOW that there will be a just and peaceful angry backlash against the weakening of the USA in so many areas and they are screaming.

    Is it my imagination or was thie group overwhelmingly Democrat?  There sure seemd to be more praise than criticism which is OK, if that's how a randomly selected group responds to questions.  I'm just saying that if this is an even representation of who & what's out there regarding the young President's report card, we are in trouble.

    You just can't fix stupid and the inherited line sunk to the bottom after the first trillion+ $ budget deficit was submitted.
