BLOG: Frank Luntz Previews Tonight’s Special at 9p ET
By Political Pollster Frank Luntz
Are you curious about what Americans think about the deficit, the debt, taxes, health care, and even negative campaign ads? Would you like to see real people like yourself challenge our political leaders on both sides of the aisle?
Well, then you’re in luck. On Friday and Sunday at 9p/ 12a ET, I’m hosting a one-hour special that explores the most controversial issues of the 2012 election – and YOUR voice is front and center.

The topics and the guest list are really remarkable. Seven(!!) guests go toe-to-toe with the American people. It all starts with the great Sean Hannity himself in a duel with me over the most persuasive message for the 2012 campaign. (Guess who wins.)
Next up is Herman Cain – and he publicly endorses a VP candidate for Mitt Romney that will surprise some of you and please others. But don’t leave the room – his verbal face-to-face battle with members of our voter panel is notable and unforgettable.
Former Governor & Senator Evan Bayh takes a stand on the behavior of Congress and the president that may put him at odds with people in his own party. But it’s his civil exchange with our voter panel that proves he has rightfully earned the reputation of being one of the most thoughtful and most-missed senators.
The second half of the show begins with a rock ’em, sock ’em debate between Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn and Democratic Congressman Eliot Engel over the deficit, debt and tax increases. The sparks fly in what is probably the most lively exchange of the hour.
For those of you who don’t live in swing states, you won’t want to miss the next segment where I unveil the two most impactful negative ads of the campaign season so far. It’s politics at its best – and worst.
We end with another contentious debate – this time over the impending Supreme Court health care ruling. Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley goes head to head with Fox’s favorite lawyer, Peter Johnson, Jr. – and neither side gives an inch. They fight for the last word, and our voter panel challenges them every step of the way.
This is my fourth prime time one-hour special of the year. Thanks to great real-people interaction with the guests, I hope it’s the best. See you this weekend!
