The truth about President Obama’s approval rating

Glenn has been talking about the implications of President Obama’s ever dwindling approval rating for a few weeks now. Real Clear Politics, which averages the data of several polling organizations, has the President’s approval rating at 41.9% and his disapproval at 53.1% for the period of October 25 through November 10. These numbers take an even greater meaning when you consider a story from the National Journal that argues there is a good chance President Obama’s approval rating will not bounce back.

“I want Stu to take you over a chart and explain a chart of the President's approval ratings here real quick,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And then I'm going to tell you exactly what it means.”

“National Journal has a story out today talking about how presidents who aren't running for reelection, history shows, they don't rebound from losing approval rating,” Stu said. “So you drop in your approval rating, you can't come back unless you're running for reelection and that's what history has shown.”

The article Stu is referring to, “Why Obama Won’t Bounce Back,” explains that history shows presidents who aren't running for reelection don't recover from drops in their approval rating. If you take a look at the Real Clear Politics average of the last year of the President’s tenure, the trend isn’t pretty.

“Okay. Now let me explain what this means. First of all, that's an average… And if you look at that chart, it is a steep, steep decline,” Glenn said. “I told you before the election, you get rid of this guy now or you are going to see a long, national four-year nightmare because I think this guy could be impeached. I think he could be impeached on a lot of things.”

In the next 18 to 24 months, Glenn believes the President’s approval rating could fall to 20%. From the digitization of money to the unrest in the Middle East, the rise of the police state to a lack of jobs, Glenn explained just a few of the ever-growing problems facing this Administration. Add those factors to the failures of Obamacare and concerns over the size/scope of the NSA, and suddenly President Obama finds himself in a position that could very well end a presidency. So what happens next?

“So what happens? First of all, pray. I beg you to pray on your knees for the safety of this President. I beg you to pray for the Secret Service. I beg you to pray that everyone in Washington – Republican, Democrat, no matter who it is, that they are kept safe because there are crazy people out there. There are. And there are people filled with rage and hate,” Glenn said. “Please pray for safety on all leaders… no matter how you feel about them.”

“So now what are you going to do about it,” Glenn asked. “I would ask you that you become self-reliant. And what self-reliant means is you are not beholden to somebody for your education. You are not beholden to somebody for your physical, temporal, spiritual, educational wellbeing, that you are independent on all of those things. Can you do that? Are you that already? I challenge you to do that now. Those will be the ones that will lead the world tomorrow. And we can go a dark way or we can go a good way. I'm going a good way… The answers come from love and charity and being who Americans have always been. We will lead again.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
