Frank Luntz’s focus group unanimously condemned the GOP debate and let’s face it, no one witnessed any form of ‘debate’ and instead, it was more like a slapfight. ‘I know you are but what am I?,’ style politics was on full display.
Luntz asked each participant for a one word description of the debate.
Media Matters reports:
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Sophomoric.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Embarrassment
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Disappointing.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Shameful.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Despicable.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Angering.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Low on substance.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Disgusting.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: School yard brawl.
Luntz then asked, “By a show of hands, how many of you thought this helped the Republican party, what they saw tonight across the country? Raise your hands if it helped the GOP.”
No one raised their hand.
Watch courtesy of Media Matters:
“None of you. So what is the problem? What is your anger? Explain it to me,” Luntz asked.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: They’re not getting their points across. They’re not telling us about what they want to do as president.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: They’re giving soundbite fuel for the Democrats.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: I think it’s a lot of baiting by the moderators at times, Frank.
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: They’re constantly attacking Donald Trump.
LUNTZ: Oh, so they’re attacking Donald Trump —
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Yes.
LUNTZ: — And that’s the reason why you are so unhappy?
FOCUS GROUP MEMBER: Rubio, Cruz, they’re sandwiching him for the last two debates.
When Luntz asked how many came into the group supporting Donald Trump, many in the group raised his hands. When asked if Trump won the debate, only one person raised his hand.
The group agreed that John Kasich won the debate because he was the ‘adult in the room’
And yet, these same people vote GOP. Think about that. They witnessed the same thing we did. A debate without substance, filled with schoolyard bully tactics and zingers from seemingly 5-year-olds in the playground.
Two things were revealed during the debate. Trump reassured voters that he has a big dick and Ted Cruz eats his boogers. Geez. That’s just way too much information.
