Focus group reaction led to Clinton's 'apology'
Frank I. Luntz (born February 23, 1962) is an American political consultant, pollster, and "public opinion guru" best known for developing talking points and other messaging for various Republican causes. His work has included assistance with messaging for Newt Gingrich's Contract with America, promotion of the terms death tax instead of estate tax and climate change instead of global warming, and public relations support for pro-Israel policies in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Luntz's most recent work has been with the Fox News Channel as a frequent commentator and analyst, as well as running focus groups during and after presidential debates. Luntz describes his specialty as “testing language and finding words that will help his clients sell their product or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate.” He is also an author of business books dealing with communication strategies and public opinion. Luntz's current company, Luntz Global, LLC, specializes in message creation and image management for commercial and political clients.

It looks like she's gradually losing support. I really think Bernie Sanders will end up being the democratic front runner once the democratic debates are televised.
There's still along way to go yet in this election. I wouldn't be surprised if Trumps numbers start waning and the other two republican outsiders, Karly Fiorina and Ben Carson overtake him.

I'm not sure there's a politician that doesn't use focus groups. This has been the standard political play for both sides for almost 100 years since Edward Bernays started consulting for politicians.
