Tucker Carlson claims powerful GOP pollster Frank Luntz is secret LIBERAL and blames him for pushing pro-immigration policies

  • Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted GOP pollster Frank Luntz on Friday 
  • He accused Luntz of being a ‘conventional liberal’ for his views on immigration 
  • Luntz claimed there is growing support among GOP voters for immigration 
  • Carlson said Luntz was out of touch with grassroots Republicans on the issue 
  • He said Luntz was repeating pro-immigration views of ‘left-wing corporations’ 
  • Luntz said Carlson’s segment led to ‘angry, misspelled messages in my inbox’ 

Tucker Carlson says Republican lawmakers are disconnected from their supporters partly because they listen to ‘conventional liberals’ like Frank Luntz, whom he accused of serving ‘left-wing corporations’ such as Google.

The Fox News host took aim at the veteran GOP pollster Luntz after Axios quoted him last week as saying that ‘Republicans are more pro-immigrant than elites realize.’

Luntz said he conducted focus groups of prospective voters and that he came away with the impression that the gaps between Democrats and Republicans on hot-button issues like immigration and border security aren’t as wide as thought.

Carlson on Friday ridiculed Luntz for suggesting that Republicans support granting permanent legal status to Dreamers, or undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as young children.

The Fox News host blasted Luntz for suggesting that ‘Republican voters, in fact, are dying to give amnesty to as many foreign nationals as they possibly can.’

Carlson said sarcastically: ‘They’re demanding it right away!’

He then played a clip of an interview with Luntz in which the pollster says that Trump supporters are in favor of providing a ‘path to citizenship’ to the Dreamers.

Carlson accused Luntz of taking the same position on immigration as that of Google, and that his views were applauded by ‘open borders activists.’

Luntz has been ‘toadying for big corporations’ like Purdue Pharma, the maker of the highly addictive painkiller OxyContin, which has been blamed for helping fuel the opioid epidemic.

The Fox News star also hit out at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Luntz is a ‘close personal friend’ of the congressman, according to Carlson.

‘That relationship gives Frank Luntz outsized influence over the Republican Party’s policy positions,’ Carlson said.

The prime time host also mentioned that Luntz is friends with President Biden.

Last year, Luntz revealed that Biden ‘came over to me and gave me the biggest hug’ after he learned that the pollster suffered a stroke while conducting a focus group in New Hampshire in January of last year.

‘Joe Biden is a kind man,’ Luntz told MSNBC in October.

‘He’s a decent man. He’s been through hell himself, on several occasions.’
