GOP 2016: How remarkable would a Rubio - Fiorina ticket be?

Glenn went over the most recent poll numbers following the second GOP debate on radio Monday. The results showed Carly Fiorina rocketing to the top along with Marco Rubio, while both Donald Trump and Ben Carson went down following their previous surges.

"I can very easily see a Rubio-Fiorina ticket. Or Fiorina-Rubio ticket," Glenn said.

Listen to how the rest of the candidates performed and get Glenn's reaction below.

Want to give you the latest poll results in New Hampshire. Looks like Carly Fiorina is starting to rocket to the top.

PAT: Cool.

GLENN: Also, Marco Rubio is rocketing to the top and made some big gains.

STU: Trump and Carson both fell in this most recent poll. This one was from CNN. The first one post-debate.

PAT: Carly Fiorina went up 12 points. She went from three to 15.

STU: That's impressive.

GLENN: She's coming to the studio soon. I'm really anxious to sit down. I want to really sit down and really get to know her.

PAT: Because we keep hearing the same thing. We keep hearing what a big government progressive she is. We've been looking into it.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm going to talk to her about it. I'm going to ask her all the hard questions and everything else. But I --

PAT: She took --

GLENN: She denies it hard. She denies it hard.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So I'm really anxious to go over this with her. I like her. I like Marco Rubio. I like Ben Carson. My guy is still Ted Cruz.

STU: Rand Paul. Bobby Jindal.

GLENN: Bobby Jindal.

PAT: Jindal has been --

GLENN: Probably Bobby Jindal is the biggest tragedy after all of this. Because he's at, what, 1 percent? Bobby Jindal is remarkable. Really, truly remarkable.

PAT: He's a clear-cut conservative.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: I haven't heard anybody allege that any of his policies are less than conservative. And he always has been.

GLENN: Got a great American success story.

PAT: He can articulate points extremely well, with the one exception of the speech, what, seven years ago.

GLENN: Stop it.

PAT: I know. But somebody will say, "What about the speech?" Well, okay, we've covered that a million times.

GLENN: No, that's you.

PAT: And Jeffy. And Jeffy is about to say it, "What about the speech?"

GLENN: Come on.

PAT: He's brilliant.

STU: We should come back to Bobby Jindal because he just had a great comment on this whole controversy. But one other thing we should point out, five candidates in the CNN poll received less than one half of one percentage point. Jim Gilmore. You know him as Jim Gilcrestmorelandson. Lindsey Graham.

PAT: Yep.

STU: Bobby Jindal, which is ridiculous.

GLENN: Doesn't make sense.

PAT: It's absolutely tragic.

STU: George Pataki and Scott Walker.

PAT: Oh, my gosh!

GLENN: That's unbelievable. Bobby Jindal and Scott Walker -- I don't know what happened to Scott Walker.

PAT: Scott Walker was leading the field a short time ago.

STU: Yeah. And now he's at less --

GLENN: That's why you just don't get upset -- let me take a dose of my own medicine. Why you just don't get upset at the frontrunner because it ain't going to last.

STU: Who was the frontrunner one year ago today? One year --

GLENN: Scott Walker?

PAT: Do you know?

STU: I do know.

GLENN: Give me the candidates again. I'll remember if you give me the candidates. Give me all the candidates.

PAT: One year ago today. I'm going to say Rand Paul.

GLENN: No.

JEFFY: Rick Perry.

GLENN: No.

STU: No on all those counts.

PAT: Stu Bergstein.

GLENN: Gilcrestmoreson.

STU: It was Jim Gilcrest.

GLENN: Who was it?

STU: It was Chris Christie.

GLENN: Oh, I would not have guessed it.

STU: Chris Christie led the field a year ago today.

PAT: Wow.

STU: That's not that long ago.

PAT: Wow.

STU: He's completely disappeared since.

GLENN: And, you know what, I think he could actually come back.

STU: I think so too.

GLENN: This is a horse race that is just -- just in the first turn.

STU: And you have one debate. Again, now Carly Fiorina did well in two debates. But most people didn't see the first one. So essentially one debate performance from Carly Fiorina has her all the way to second place or third place, while Scott Walker who has had two, I would say, middling performances. He hasn't been horrible. He hasn't made awful mistakes. He's been okay. He hasn't been electric. But he's been fine. And he's gone from one of the leaders to nothing.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And Trump has fallen off eight points from his last CNN poll. And now with -- if you do first and second choices, which is an interesting way to look at this. So you have your main candidate. And who would be my second choice?

GLENN: To win, you must be everybody's second choice.

STU: Yeah. That's kind of a good way of looking at it, I think. And right now, Trump is -- no longer leads that for the first time in quite a while.

GLENN: First and second?

STU: First and second choice combined, Carson is first. Trump is second. But only just a hair ahead of both Fiorina and Rubio in that poll. So he's fallen -- you know, Fiorina leads in another new poll in New Hampshire. First time that's happened.

GLENN: I can very easily see a Rubio/Fiorina ticket. Or Fiorina/Rubio ticket.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And what a remarkable ticket that would be. I mean, just based on the way the left plays.

PAT: Identity politics.

GLENN: Identity politics. Oh, my gosh, that just smashes the last one completely.

STU: Yeah, it's two really smart people. A female and a Hispanic. Both very well-spoken. One of which they will attack for her wealth and for her evil CEO-ness. But the other one they've attacked for being too poor. They've already attacked Rubio for owing money on his college loans. They've already gone down the exact opposite road. Whether they can reverse that with Rubio I don't know.

GLENN: The president owed money on his -- that was a big campaign thing. I'm just like you.

STU: I know. Yeah, the idea that he bought a 10,000-dollar boat after getting his first bit of money in his entire life is something that's apparently controversial.

GLENN: You won't believe -- even in this audience -- Raphe and I went to the Mecum Auto Auction this weekend. It was here in Dallas. And we didn't even pay for the seats to actually go sit with people. We stood way in the back. And we just looked at the cars. And we watched them push them into the auction. Then we stood there for a while, and we were like, look at that car is going for $30,000. I had a car like that, I should have saved it. You know, it cost $5,000 at the time. And we just went to it. I posted some stuff. And I posted just dream cars. I'm like, "Oh, man, would this not be a dream car." Blah, blah. You know, $110,000 dream car. I'm not buying it or anything else. Oh, my gosh. You wouldn't believe the people on Facebook that are like, "Oh, you are so sick. You and your wealth and everything." I'm like, "What are you talking about?"

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: Since when can you not even go to a car show and go, "Wow, wouldn't you like to drive that for a while?"

JEFFY: You can't dream of being rich. You can dream of being middle class.

STU: Aspire to it, Jeffy.

GLENN: In this society, you cannot even dream about being rich.

STU: Yet the same people praise wealth when it comes from the Kardashians or any other dozen sources.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: From pop icons they like from rappers that they like. Some of these people are the most capitalist people you can imagine.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But at the same time --

GLENN: And grotesquely capitalist.

STU: Yeah, I mean, it's hard to say that you have a frontrunner who is Donald Trump that you can criticize anybody else for being grotesque when it comes to wealth. But still.

PAT: Some of these guys have gold teeth that are worth $50,000. Come on.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Even with Donald Trump's grotesque display of wealth.

STU: I have no problem with it.

GLENN: I have no problem with it. When I say grotesque, I just mean because everything is gold and looks like it came out of Rome. I'm not a fan of his style, but I don't care about his wealth. Why should we care about anybody's wealth?

STU: And that's part of Trump's charm, I think. Is that he's one of the only people ever who doesn't apologize for it. Even Mitt Romney was somewhat apologetic about it.

PAT: He brags about it non-stop.

STU: Yeah, he does, which is kind of the other way.

GLENN: But you don't see rappers do that. You don't see anybody asking rappers to do that.

STU: To stop bragging about their wealth.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Beyonce or anybody else talk -- they don't care. They don't care. And it's accepted.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And which would you rather have the wealth -- if you're on the grand scheme of things, which would you rather have the wealth earned by, a guy on TV like me who makes his money because of commercials and everything else because of my opinion or a guy who is building buildings? I don't have a problem with either, quite frankly. Because I'm on the losing end of that stick.

(laughter)

But I don't have a problem with either one of them. But why should we look at somebody's wealth who has actually built something. We just don't aspire to anything to anymore.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

Image source: Simon Dawson/Bloomberg via Getty Images

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
