Frank Luntz: 'There's Going To Be A Lot Of Recrimination After Election Day'

"I have never seen a campaign that has less discipline."

On Sunday's Face the Nation, pollster Frank Luntz had some really bad news for down-ticket Republicans. The party is badly split between "never Trump" and "Trump or die":

I think it’s going to be very challenging for the GOP, because you have got some Trump voters who are unwilling to vote for a Republican for Senate or Congress as a way to send a message to the establishment, and you have got some independents who want to vote Republican for the Senate and the House, but won’t because they’re too connected to Donald Trump.

With only 17 days to go, I have not seen an election like this, where there is so much intraparty battles going on at a time when the Republicans should be focused on the Democrats and prosecuting the case against their leadership.

He called the Trump campaign the most undisciplined he has ever seen, and suggested that if Trump had made the election about the voter rather than about himself, it would be a very different race and Trump's to win.
