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

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.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:

Our police officers are called racists, killers, and murderers even if all the evidence suggests the opposite is true. With the bodycam footage and information we have so far, it looks like the Columbus, Ohio, police officer involved in the shooting of Ma'Khia Bryant "is a hero," Glenn Beck said.

On the radio program, Glenn, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray discussed the fatal shooting of the 16-year-old who appeared to be about to stab another girl when the officer shot her. They agreed that the officer arrived at an extremely chaotic scene, and within seconds was able to identify the threat and react. But that hasn't prevented the Left from demonizing him — like LeBron James tweeting the officer's photo and saying "you're next."

Glenn went on to say it's time for the Fraternal Order of Police to stand with its officers and for Columbus police temporarily to walk from the job to show the Left and the media unity for the officer currently under investigation.

"I want you to either call or maybe you tweet today, 'Police we support you. I stand with the police. #Istandwiththepolice.' Our police are under attack," Glenn stated.

"And let me tell you something, police officers, if you are a racist and you're out shooting people, I will be the first to come and say, 'put that guy in prison' ... but the vast majority of police officers are good and competent," he continued. "And they're doing their best. And they're risking their lives for us. I stand with the police!"

"Make sure you let your local police officers know that," Glenn added. "And FOP, I'm telling you, you have to do a strike in some of these cities, and Columbus would be a really good place to do it. ... You have got to send a message to the media and everyone else. One day without police in one of these cities and you see what happens. You don't want the police? You want to 'reimagine' the police? Go ahead! Until the White House stops this nonsense, walk."

A shocking report from Yahoo News recently exposed a covert operation to track Americans' social media posts for "inflammatory" content — carried out by the U.S. Postal Service.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere broke down what we know about the USPS' surveillance effort, known as the Internet Covert Operations Program (or iCOP), and the role it plays in providing other federal agencies with information on "right-wing leaning" accounts, among other data, and asked: Who exactly authorized the U.S. Postal Service to monitor the internet?

"It was found out yesterday and released in a story by Yahoo News, the United States Postal Service is apparently tracking social media posts as part of a clandestine program, searching for inflammatory messages," Glenn began. "Wait, the Postal Service has a clandestine operation going on?"

Glenn read highlights from the Yahoo report, noting that iCOP has quietly had analysts combing through various social media sites, particularly those considered "right-wing leaning," looking for "inflammatory" postings and then sharing information with other government agencies.

"The Postal Service is now spying on you. But no big deal, right?" Glenn added sarcastically.

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
