Frank Luntz Finds the 1% – In Maher’s Audience Where One Person Supports Romney

October 6th, 2012 11:02 AM

A revelatory humorous moment on Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO: A single member of his studio audience supports Mitt Romney. How’d he get in?

When Republican political consultant Frank Luntz predicted Barack Obama would win re-election, loud applause broke out from those in the studio at CBS Television City in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. “How many of you out there support Mitt Romney?” A single person clapping could be heard, prompting Luntz to quip: “That’s the sound of one percent.”

Later during the segment on the October 5 program, Maher condemned Luntz: “You’re evil because you think of words to get stupid people to vote against their interests.”
