Luntz: Time For McConnell To 'Pass On The Torch'

September 2, 2023

Republican pollster Frank Luntz is a little closer to the heartbeat of the American voters than most people are.

It is his job, after all, to know what people are thinking.

That's why he's the perfect man to stand up for common sense and say that it's time for Sen. Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, to "pass on the torch" after freezing up at a press conference for a SECOND TIME.

The left has Joe Biden and Dianne Feinstein, Republicans have McConnell.

McConnell was clearly experiencing a medical issue, so we shouldn't be too hard on him.

However, when you're representing MILLIONS of Americans, you have a responsibility to be the best you can, both physically and mentally. If this is the best that McConnell can put forward, it's probably in the best interest of America's citizens to give somebody else a chance.

"I have sympathy for him, having suffered a stroke myself three-and-a-half years ago, and I know how temporarily difficult it can be. I also have sympathy for him as he is committed to serving the people who elected him," Luntz said. "But it is one of the problems that we have with Washington, which is that there is a time to lead and a time to pass on the torch to another generation." He went on:

I thought that the comments his office made were insufficient. I think they’re going to have to be more forthcoming. I do not want to cast any aspersions on as I do not with Sen. Dianne Feinstein on the Democratic side. But I understand why the public is saying about some of these people, ‘Give somebody else the chance to do the job.'
