Luntz: Real ‘Possibility’ Trump Runs as a Third Party Candidate

Monday on AM 970’s “The Joe Piscopo Show,” pollster Frank Luntz suggested that since Republican presidential candidate and longtime Clinton friend Donald Trump refused to say he would endorse whoever got the Republican party nomination, it is a real “possibility” Trump is planning a third party run. This, as host Joe Piscopo pointed out, would allow Hillary to “walk right in” to the presidency and be an astonishing historical repeat, because Ross Perot’s third party candidacy is credited for President Bill Clinton’s victory over President George H.W. Bush in 1992.

Luntz said, “The thing that no one noticed, is that someone asked him, ‘Will you guarantee to endorse the Republican candidate if you don’t get the nomination?’ And Trump said no. I believe that it may happen. I absolutely believe that we have to take as a possibility a Trump third party candidacy.”

Piscopo added, “Hillary or whoever it is…Hillary, she’ll walk in, or somebody on the Democratic side.”
