Trump Is Lagging Behind So Far That Hunter Biden Surveys ‘scandal’ Has Little Impact: Republican Pollster

Republican pollster Frank Luntz thinks former Vice President Joe Biden will win the presidential election on November 3 and it’s too late for President Donald Trump to turn things around.

Luntz has criticized the Trump campaign for focusing on Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his alleged financial dealings in Ukraine and China. The veteran Republican consultant thinks most people just don’t care.

Luntz convened a panel of 14 undecided voters for the Los Angeles Times to review the final presidential debate on Thursday. From their reactions, Luntz concluded that Trump could make up ground with some undecided voters but not enough to win.

A majority of the participants in Luntz’ focus group said they wanted to hear more about the allegations against Hunter Biden. Just two said they didn’t care.

Luntz said it’s “virtually impossible” for Trump to win even if the polls are as wrong as they were in 2016. He noted that Biden’s lead is large enough to overcome any margin of error in polling. The Democrat enjoys a poll lead of 9.7 percent, according to poll tracker FiveThirtyEight.

Hours before the final debate on Thursday, Luntz told Mediaite that focusing on Hunter Biden was a losing strategy for the Trump campaign.

“No one cares,” Luntz said. “I promise you that if that is the focus of their response over the next 48 hours, then Donald Trump will not win this election.”

“They have won all the Trump voters they’re going to win,” he went on. “And I know that their philosophy is, ‘How do we turn out as many people who like us as opposed to trying to go for the center?’

“By comparison, Joe Biden has completely gone to the center, has basically ignored his hardcore people. And that’s one of the reasons why his numbers have increased and Donald Trump’s numbers have not.”

U.S. President Donald Trump participates in the final presidential debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at Belmont University on October 22, in Nashville. This was the last debate between the two candidates before the election on November 3. Trump may be too far behind in the polls to beat Biden.
