GOP 2016 - The latest poll numbers

Stu shared the latest poll numbers from NBC with Glenn and his listeners on radio Tuesday.

Listen to the segment or read the transcript below.

If you get lost, don't worry, you're not alone.

"This is the most confusing poll I’ve heard ever heard in my life," Glenn said.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: All right. Here's the latest poll from NBC.

STU: Donald Trump, 25. Ben Carson --

GLENN: Wait. Can you give me some history? Is that up or down? Oh, my gosh.

STU: Well, it's in line with his other polls, I would say.

PAT: Sucks. This sucks.

STU: Slightly up from his last poll from NBC. Down from other polls. That's why I didn't think it was notable to say it was the same.

PAT: So it's 25 percent still. Hanging in there. Contrary to what you believed in the beginning, was that he would go away quickly. Is that not what Stu Burguiere said?

STU: I believe I'm on record saying by Christmas, which I'm starting to sweat about now.

GLENN: I think he'll last longer than Christmas, but I think he's fading.

STU: I'm thinking of it as a gift from Jesus that he'll go away.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: So 25, Donald Trump. Ben Carson, 22.

GLENN: Is that up or down?

STU: Well, it's up from his last polls. But, again, a little bit above where he's been polling typically.

PAT: And then Ted Cruz, 21 and a half?

STU: No. Marco Rubio, 13.

GLENN: This is national?

JEFFY: Is it up or down?

STU: Yes, this is national. That is up, Jeffy, thank you for asking. Ted Cruz is in fourth.

PAT: Is that up or down?

STU: That's up. Thank you for asking.

JEFFY: How about Ted Cruz? Where is he at?

STU: I just said his name.

PAT: What percent?

GLENN: This is the most confusing poll I've heard ever heard in my life.

STU: I was going to go through it and then discuss.

PAT: What is it?

STU: He's at nine. Jeb Bush, eight. Carly, seven. Huckabee, Kasich, three. Rand Paul, two. Chris Christie, one. Graham, Santorum, Pataki, Jindal, Gilmore, zero.

PAT: Holy cow.

STU: If Lindsey Graham doesn't get 1 percent in the next two polls, he's out of the JV debate next time.

GLENN: Yeah!

STU: That's a big one.

GLENN: That's good. That's something I can spend the rest of the day just chewing on. Yeah! Thank you very much.

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?

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.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
