The View June 30, 2014 Preview
The View has a great episode June 30, 2014, with pollster Frank Luntz coming by the show to quiz The View ladies on a number of issues facing America today in family matters, political views, pop culture, social media, and food. Frank Luntz knows what America thinks about all of these issues, having done the polling to find out. But how do our ladies compare?
The View: Frank Luntz “America’s View”
Frank Luntz is a conservative commentator and poll master who has worked as a political consultant and Republican Party strategist for famous Republicans such as Newt Gingrich, Pat Buchanan, Ross Perot, and George W. Bush, perhaps most famous for coming up with the disparaging term “death tax” for estate taxes.
Frank Luntz will be coming by The View as a guest co-host to quiz the ladies on issues ranging from family matters, pop culture, social media, food, and politics.
The View: America’s View
The ladies of The View often discuss a myriad of issues on the show, but rarely are they tested like this. How closely do their views mirror those of the people of America?
This episode is pre-taped, so the issues discussed have to be more general issues than specific ones. For instance, with social media, questions might be something like, how much social media use is too much? Or how young is too young for a child to use social media regularly? Should 10-year-olds have Facebook accounts?
Or with politics, questions might be something like, should the U.S. intervene in Iraq? Or will Hillary Clinton run for president?
One category of questions I am very curious about is the food category. I think that’s one topic The View never discusses. I’m not even sure what kind of questions about food they would have asked America. Maybe questions about the prevalence of the gluten free diet or the growing trend of the Paleo diet? Maybe they asked if we had too much sugar in our diet or if we’re too reliant on going out to eat?
We’ll have to tune in June 20, 2014 to find out and see how the ladies’ answers compared to America’s!
