You Built This, Frank Luntz

Notable word-person Frank Luntz looks at the political landscape that he and Noot built and is horrified:

Luntz appeared on Morning Joe and was asked for comment on a recent Yahoo! News/YouGov poll that revealed that 44% of poll respondents believe a losing candidate should accept results, simply saying he found the poll to be “scary as hell.”

The long-time Republican pollster revealed that he was attending a Conservative Party conference in the UK where he was “trying to say to them, be very careful what you wish for. Be very careful of what campaign you hold today, you could end up like the U.S.”

“When you lose faith and trust in elections itself, you’ve lost your democracy,” Luntz added. “And we are so close to the edge.”

He then explained how he told college students, “this isn’t how democracy is supposed to work. You accept the loss and move on. It’s so toxic. We don’t want what’s happening in the U.S. to happen here in the UK. That could be a tragedy.”

Which takes a lot of brass when you are the person who co-wrote Weaponizing Words for GOPac back in the day. This moment is yours, Frankie. You should cherish it.

    I wonder what he was thinking his end game was since this is what he was aiming for. A conservative utopia?
