Trump wins focus group over with epic speech, but one moment stands out above the rest

Donald Trump’s convention speech covered many issues but there was one moment that stood out with members of a focus group.

A Frank Luntz group of undecided voters rated one part of Trump’s nomination acceptance speech Thursday higher than anything else in the preceding days.

“Republicans, Independents and Democrats dialed it through the roof,” when Trump spoke about corruption and Hillary Clinton, Luntz said on Fox News’ “Hannity.”

“I came into this Never Trump,” said one panelist. “I’m 39 years old. That was the best speech by a presidential candidate I’ve heard in my entire life, ever.  And I don’t say that lightly, ’cause I’ve heard them all.”

One member of the group who came in supporting Bernie Sanders said he now believed the GOP nominee would bring “unity” to the nation.

“I feel patriotism. I feel completely safe. I feel there is love of country, and with a leader like Donald Trump who believes in the people, the chaos in this country will turn to unity,” he said.

One “Never Trump” panelist noted that he was not going to be swayed by one speech. “He’s lied before. He always called Ted ‘Lyin’ Ted.’ He’s been caught in quite a few,” he said.

Luntz concluded that Trump’s indictment of Clinton was “successful” in swaying the undecided voters of the focus group.

“They have successfully made the case that she should not be the next president,” Luntz said. “And they have somewhat made the case that Donald Trump should be that person.”
