Glenn and Pat predicts Romney landslide, Stu thinks Obama may get a second term


This is it - just one day until the biggest election perhaps in the history of America. After all the debates, all the attacks, all the gaffes -- where does each candidate stand in the polls? What are people predicting just 1 day out? Can Romney actually pull off a landslide?

TheBlaze has posted some of the latest swing state polls:

A new University of Cincinnati poll of undecided voters shows President Obama with 50 percent support and Mitt Romney with 48.5 percent.

A new Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows a slightly closer race with both Obama and Romney at 49 percent.

An NBC-Wall Street Journal-Marist poll of likely voters in Virginia released Sunday shows Obama 48 percent to Romney’s 47 percent.

Public Policy Polling has new numbers today for Nevada and Colorado:

Nevada: Obama 51%, Romney 47%

Colorado: Obama 52%, Romney 46%

With the final polls trickling in, the radio crew gave their predictions for the Electoral College.

"321‑217," Glenn said. "I think that's what we're headed for because I think we're headed for Chick‑fil‑A.  Nobody bused people into Chick‑fil‑A.  And look at what that was.  I think there are millions of Americans who just aren't making a big deal out of it.  They're just going to go.  And they are going to do the right thing.  And nobody has to bus them in, nobody has to organize them.  They are just going to do the right thing.  I think you are going to see a miraculous night tomorrow."

"Either the media is going to be very, very wrong or we're going to be very wrong.  And I don't think either side knows which it is," Glenn explained.

Glenn pointed out the huge and energetic crowds that greeted Mitt Romney over the weekend. Up until recently, many had considered Pennsylvania to be a safe win for Barack Obama. Recently, however, both he and Romney have been pouring money into Pennsylvania.

"They sent Bill Clinton to Pennsylvania.  Why would you do that?  Because they don't believe their poll numbers, either.  They might think, both sides might think they have it locked down.  I don't think the Obama people do," Glenn said.

Pat believes that Romney will win 337-201 in the Electoral College.

Stu, on the other hand, is not as confident in a Romney victory. Stu explained that the Real Clear Politics average gives Romney a 1.4 point lead in Florida. Confidently giving Romney a Florida victory, Stu gave Romney every state where he had a 1.4 point lead in the polls. This does not give Romney a victory in the Electoral College.

"If we're thinking Romney's lead of 1.4% is safe, then we could also apply that same standard to Obama.  So if he leads states by 1.4% or more, they would be safe," Stu explained.

" So if you apply that standard and you give Mitt Romney all the states he leads in no matter how small the lead and all the states Obama leads in up to 1.4%, Obama still wins."

Stu's final Electoral College?  281‑257 Obama.

Critical race theory: Struggle sessions

China has a rich legacy of torture. During the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese Communist Party used a variety of torture techniques. These became more and more advanced over time. This included public humiliation and public executions.

One specific kind of public humiliation is what's called "The Struggle Session." It was a punishment reserved for people who committed wrong-think. The point was to publicly degrade the person until they swore allegiance to the Communist Party. Their focus is on the elimination of the power base and/or class position of enemy classes or groups. It was also a warning to everyone watching: If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

It was a way to punish anyone who so much as disagreed with Communist Party dogma.

These struggle sessions often took place in busy areas.

They also took place at universities, like the struggle session for the professor You Xiaoli, as recounted by Anne Thurston, in Enemies of the People:

You Xiaoli was standing, precariously balanced, on a stool. Her body was bent over from the waist into a right angle, and her arms, elbows stiff and straight, were behind her back, one hand grasping the other at the wrist. It was the position known as "doing the airplane." Around her neck was a heavy chain, and attached to the chain was a blackboard, a real blackboard, one that had been removed from a classroom at the university where You Xiaoli, for more than ten years, had served as a full professor. On both sides of the blackboard were chalked her name and the myriad crimes she was alleged to have committed...

The scene was taking place at the university, too, in a sports field at one of China's most prestigious institutions of higher learning. In the audience were You Xiaoli's students and colleagues and former friends. Workers from local factories and peasants from nearby communes had been bussed in for the spectacle. From the audience came repeated, rhythmic chants ... "down with You Xiaoli! Down with You Xiaoli!"

"I had many feelings at that struggle session," recalls You Xiaoli. "I thought there were some bad people in the audience. But I also thought there were many ignorant people, people who did not understand what was happening, so I pitied that kind of person. They brought workers and peasants into the meetings, and they could not understand what was happening. But I was also angry."

Struggle sessions have been revived, and exported to America. They come in many forms.

Forced apologies.

Beatings in public—like the mob attack on Rand Paul.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was sucker-punched.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was stabbed for being white.

Anti-racism seminars, like the one in Seattle.

Or the one involving Sandia Labs executives seminar.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.
