An expert on what people really think, Frank Luntz may be the most widely recognized pollster in America.
Word to use, words to lose. They form a core of the advice Frank Luntz shares to those who value his work. A winner of the Washington Post’s coveted “Crystal Ball” award for being the most accurate pundit, Luntz’s focus groups have become so influential that presidential candidate Barack Obama noted “When Frank Luntz invites you to talk to his focus group, you talk to his focus group.”
More media outlets have turned to Frank Luntz for focus groups and consulting than to any other political pollster, making him one of the most honored political and communication professionals in America today. The "Instant Response" focus group technique he pioneered has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Good Morning America (on Election Day), and on PBS's award-winning Frontline. He also served as a consultant to the NBC hit show The West Wing. Luntz's best-selling book, Words That Work: It's Not What You Say, It's What People Hear, offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the tactical use of words and phrases affects what we buy, who we vote for, and even what we believe in. He is also the author of What Americans Really Want...
