Frank Luntz, a conservative pollster famous for his focus groups on FOX News and other networks, told Katie Couric of Yahoo News on Tuesday evening, the night of the U.S. presidential election, that he is dropping out of the now Donald Trump-led Republican Party and that he no longer wants to be referred to as a member of the GOP.
“Starting tonight on this show no one will call me a Republican again because I am not part of this,” Luntz announced. “I’m not part of that system, I’m not part of that negativity. This is not something I was involved in this year. I will leave it to others to explain and to try to get themselves out of this mess,” he said.
