GOP Pollster Frank Luntz: Americans ‘Don’t Care What The Size Of Government Is’ (VIDEO)

Renowned Republican pollster Frank Luntz on Monday had a brutally honest take on the GOP’s central platform plank. 

Luntz said the party’s focus on the size of the federal government, rather than its overall effectiveness and efficiency, makes for a poor message.

“The American people don’t care what the size of government is,” Luntz said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.” “They do care what types of services government gives and, quite frankly, how much government takes.”

It’s the second time in a month that Luntz has aimed public criticism at the right, with the messaging guru arguing in late-December that the National Rifle Association was out of step with the American public.
