Republican Pollster Frank Luntz: Biden Would Beat Trump in Pennsylvania


Republican pollster Frank Luntz appeared on Fox News on Thursday to double down on his argument earlier this week that Bernie Sanders is the most likely Democratic nominee for president.

Still, Luntz noted in a conversation with Neil Cavuto, the Vermont senator’s general election chances are not great: “Bernie Sanders is one of the least electable candidates that the Democrats have,” he said.

Luntz reasoned: “Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida. Those four states are going to do more to determine the election than the other 46 states combined, and Sanders is very strong in Iowa and very strong in New Hampshire.”

Luntz argued that Trump can’t win the general election with his base alone, and that Democrats will not repeat the same mistakes as 2016, putting up more of a fight in rust belt states Trump snatched.

“If Joe Biden’s the nominee, Joe Biden wins Pennsylvania, let’s be candid here” Luntz said.
