Prominent GOP pollster: Trump's campaign 'the worst I've ever seen'

3 min read

Oh, and his advisers “have their heads up their asses” — but I didn’t want to put that in the headline because this is a family-friendly column … so long as you’re not talking about my family. They think I do nothing but write anti-Trump screeds all day and smoke weed all night. Which just goes to show you, even Republicans are right occasionally.

The Hill:

Prominent Republican pollster Frank Luntz blasted President Trump and his campaign on Tuesday for focusing on Hunter Biden in the stretch run to Election Day, calling Trump’s campaign the worst he’s ever seen and saying the president’s advisers should be “brought up on charges of political malpractice.”

Speaking at a briefing for the British strategic advising company Global Counsel, Luntz said Trump’s advisers have “their heads up their asses” if they think Hunter Biden will be a winning issue for them.

“I’ve never seen a campaign more mis-calibrated than the Trump campaign. Frankly, his staff ought to be brought up on charges of political malpractice,” Luntz said.

Yeah, apparently the Trumpies don’t realize that Hunter Biden isn’t running for anything, and that the recent “bombshell” New York Post exposé is a dud … even if you believe the cockamamie story that Hunter traveled from California to Delaware to drop off a wet laptop at a rock-ribbed Trump supporter’s rinky-dink Mac repair shop and then never bothered to pick it up or inquire about it in any way.

“It is the worst campaign I’ve ever seen and I’ve been watching them since 1980. They’re on the wrong issues. They’re on the wrong message. They’ve got their heads up their asses. … Your damn job is to get your candidate to talk about things that are relevant to the people you need to reach. And if you can’t do your damn job then get out.”

You mean in the face of a deadly pandemic, a ruinous recession, a looming legal threat to millions of people’s health care, and a nascent wave of fascism, Hunter Biden’s (alleged) emails are not a kitchen table issue?


Right now the Trump campaign reminds me of that soldier in the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan who walks around in a daze looking for his arm. But we’re not done yet.

Give Joe a boost (if you can), and let’s bury these fuckwits once and for all.
