Following the acceptance speech delivered by the Republican presidential nominee Thursday, GOP pollster and consultant Frank Luntz made a prediction that is bound to have Trump supporters cheering.
Many observers thought Donald Trump’s address was to dark, especially as compared to the one delivered by his elder daughter Ivanka Trump.
“Mark my words,” Luntz tweeted, “This speech will put Trump even or ahead of Hillary in polls by Monday, when the Democratic convention begins.”

The pollster’s prediction had some backing by a CNN/ORC instant poll of those who viewed Trump’s address.
The results indicated that 56 percent of all those polled said they were more likely to vote for Trump after having watched his speech, versus only 10 percent who said they were less likely to do so.
Thirty-two percent said the speech had little or no effect on their decision.

And why is this? As his daughter, Ivanka said in her own address to the convention, “Real change, the kind we have not seen in decades, is only going to come from outside the system.”
Apparently that 56 percent of those polled feel the same way.
