Pollster Frank Luntz is apparently considering a career change.
He spoke at the California GOP delegate breakfast this morning at Lake Minnetonka (it’s a lovely lakeside town north of St. Paul) where he roamed through the tables carrying a microphone and firing off jokes. He was pretty good, actually.
But the stand-up political comic did issue a serious warning: The Nov. 4 turnout among 18 to 24-year-olds for Republicans could be the worst in the party’s history. Republicans must reach out to young voters, he said.
Luntz later engaged GOP Chairman Ron Nehring of San Diego in what he called an A ti Z debate. Luntz took the Barack Obama side and told Nehring to argue McCain’s points as each each man took the next letter of the alphabet.
They got as far as “F” and “G.”
Nehring said, “F-that” and Luntz replied, “Go to hell.”
They laughed, so don’t get the wrong idea. But it’s probably just as well that they didn’t make it to the end of the alphabet.
