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.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
