GLENN: This poll is the latest in the presidential campaign. And yesterday, in case you don't know, we asked for your support. We wrote a letter to the RNC. We talked to all the campaigns. I think -- by this time we've talked to all of them. And we've had the support of many of the campaigns. And we appreciate that. We're trying to get the last and final debate on TheBlaze. It will be the first ever all digital. We'll run it across all of the multi platforms that we have. Television, online. We'll make it free. It will go on radio, Blaze Radio as well. You know, it's a footprint of about 50 million people.

STU: And it will feature a swimsuit competition, one segment.

JEFFY: Nice.

GLENN: Yes, that's true. If that's what helps, yes.

STU: The Chris Christie part is going to be particularly interesting.

PAT: It will be.

GLENN: It will be. He's not going topless.

STU: Well, no. We would be breaking all sorts of laws.

JEFFY: Well, we should say he won't start that way.

STU: Nice.

PAT: Skin to win, though. People will start yelling that. Skin to win.

GLENN: Yeah. Every time they get a question that I don't like, I tell them to take off another piece of clothing.

STU: There would be a lot of nudity. A lot of nudity.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: So here's the latest on the poll numbers.

STU: Yes, NBC, Wall Street Journal poll, it's the national poll. And it is Carson, 29 percent. Trump, 23.

PAT: So that's the second one in a row, right?

STU: Yeah, this is -- I think two of the last three national polls that I've seen, at least, have had Carson ahead of Trump. And you have Rubio at 11 percent. Cruz at ten. Jeb Bush at eight. Carly Fiorina and John Kasich -- and, also, excuse me Mike Huckabee and Christie all at three. You have four people at three -- it's Kasich, Fiorina, Huckabee, Christie. Rand Paul at two.

PAT: Yep.

STU: And then Jim Gilcrestmorelandson, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki at zero percent.

PAT: That's a real shame for Bobby Jindal.

STU: For Bobby Jindal.

GLENN: Bobby Jindal is so great.

STU: He's not been able to get out of that kiddie table debate area.

PAT: Or the 0 percent area.

GLENN: I don't know why.

PAT: I don't either.

STU: There's just a lot of people, honestly. It seems like there's a lot of people. If Jindal could hold out for a while and a few people jumped out, he might have a chance.

GLENN: I think it's the goal of the establishment was to send a lot of these people in just to crowd the field to keep people like Bobby Jindal out. Just crowd the field. Because they know they had Bobby Jindal. They know they had Santorum.

PAT: They knew Cruz was going to run.

GLENN: Cruz was going to run.

STU: Rand Paul.

GLENN: Paul was going to run. If you crowd the field and get 12, 15 people up there. Pataki doesn't have a chance of winning. Come on.

PAT: Jim Gilmore, nobody even knows his name. Come on.

GLENN: There's no reason for that. There's no reason for Lindsey Graham. He's not going to win.

PAT: Oh, jeez.

STU: There's no reason for Lindsey Graham as a senator, let alone as a president.

GLENN: Well, I was going to say as a president.

STU: There's an argument to be made.

29 percent for Carson is the highest percentage of any Republican in any national poll by the Wall Street Journal by NBC.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Wait. Of all time or just at this time?

STU: This campaign cycle.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: So Trump has never been able to get to 29 this whole time. Carson is at --

PAT: In the Wall Street Journal. He's been higher than that in others.

STU: He's hit 30 or 31 in polls separate from this. But usually you want to keep the methodology the same. Compare poll versus poll. So Carson was leading by -- or excuse me was trailing by three points in the poll before that. If you go back to July, he was down by nine points to Trump.

GLENN: Give me the Trump numbers, back from July.

STU: He was at 19, 21, 25, 23.

GLENN: Okay. So kind of flat.

STU: Generally flat.

GLENN: Yeah, he's not necessarily cratering.

STU: It's been more of a Carson increase. From ten, 20, 22, 29. People are on the bandwagon for Ben Carson. I think maybe the most interesting part of this poll is first and second choices. There's so many candidates as you point out, Glenn, that if you have your first choice and that person doesn't get it, who is your second choice? Combine those two numbers together.

So at the bottom, you have Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum, one percent. I should say, at the very bottom, you have Lindsey Graham and Jim Gilcrestmorelandson at 0 percent.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: I just want to make this clear. Lindsey Graham isn't anyone's second choice.

GLENN: He's 1 percent of the population's first choice.

STU: No, no, no, no. He is 0 percent of the population's first choice and 0 percent second choice.

PAT: So that gives him, what, 25, 30 percent?

GLENN: That gives me hope in America.

STU: It does. Okay. So Lindsey Graham, Jim Gilmore, zero. Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, 1 percent. So first and second choice combined. At 6 percent, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, at 6 percent. Mike Huckabee at 8 percent. Then Carly Fiorina at 14. Jeb Bush at 15. Ted Cruz at 23.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Marco Rubio, 24.

PAT: Nice.

PAT: All right.

STU: Donald Trump, 35.


STU: Ben Carson, 50. He is at 50 percent, first and second choice.


STU: That is a really strong number.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
