(Republican Party News) – Famed pollster Frank Luntz has conducted a focus group on GOP voters’ trust in the notorious Dr. Anthony Fauci as compared to their personal doctors in respect to sharing facts about the coronavirus vaccine.
Luntz joined Fox News’ Bret Baier on his Thursday airing of “Special Report” where he explained that the 19 Trump voters who joined his focus group professed to have “real concern, doubt, if not distrust of Anthony Fauci and what he has to say.”
“I have tuned him out, frankly, I have no opinion anymore,” one Doug from California said of the NIH doctor.
Other “generous” terms used by the focus group to describe Fauci (as BizPac Review referred to them) were “liar,” “puppet,” “flip-flopper,” “inconsistent,” and “self-serving.”
“They’ve given up on him because he keeps changing the goalposts. He keeps changing his mind,” Luntz noted. “I don’t want to undercut Dr. Fauci’s credibility, but among Trump voters he has none.”
This comes on the heels of a fiery confrontation between Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul and Dr. Fauci, in which the former called out the latter for his position on masks and why he believes that mandating PPE is anything but “theater.”

“What studies do you have that people who have had the vaccine or had infection are spreading the infection? If we’re not spreading the infection isn’t it just theater? You’ve had the vaccine and you’re wearing 2 masks isn’t that theater?” Paul demanded of the notorious media darling Fauci.
“You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show. You can’t get it again,” Paul, himself a medical doctor, pressed on. “There’s virtually 0% chance you’re going to get it and you’re telling people that have had the vaccine who have immunity — you’re defying everything we know about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated.”
“Here we go again with the theater, let’s get down to the facts,” Fauci shot back. “When you talk about reinfection and you don’t keep in the concept of variants, that’s an entirely different ballgame. That’s a good reason for a mask,” he insisted.
Wearing a mask after having the vaccine is nothing but pure Theater. Fauci is invested in our submission. He is a liar.

Luntz says that for skeptical voters to be convinced to take the vaccine, “they need evidence other than Dr. Fauci, [whether that’s] their own doctor, their own health care provider, they’re more likely to trust [them].
