Latest CNN/ORC poll shows Cruz in second

The latest CNN/ORC presidential poll, released Friday, shows Ted Cruz surging 12 points to take the number 2 position. While Trump continues to lead, Cruz's move represents a significant shift.

"These are really interesting and very, very good. These will actually give you a rumbly in your tumbly," joked a lighthearted Glenn during The Glenn Beck Program.

The national poll shows the top four candidates among registered Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents as Trump, Cruz, Carson and Rubio. The other candidates all polled below five percent.

Registered Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents

36% Donald Trump (up 9 points)

16% Ted Cruz (up 12 points)

14% Ben Carson (down 8 points)

12% Marco Rubio (up 4 points)

The poll reveals a sharp divide among Republicans by education:

Republican with College Degrees

22% Ted Cruz

19% Ben Carson

19% Marco Rubio

18% Donald Trump

Republicans without College Degrees

46% Donald Trump

12% Ted Cruz

11% Ben Carson

8% Marco Rubio

Another significant move is Carson going down in the polls, leaving people to wonder if he's reached his peak.

"I think what happened with Ben Carson was he laid back at those debates and didn't look forceful," Glenn said. "And then Paris happened. And when Paris happened, you're like, 'You know what, the world is changing. And this is only going to get more intense as we get closer to the election. We're going to need somebody very, very dynamic and somebody very, very clear and somebody that speaks as if they have the knowledge and experience needed and required.'"

Who else in the Republican field has the authoritative and decisive nature to take care of ISIS?

"I think Chris Christie and Ted Cruz [can]," Glenn suggested. "They're the ones that can wield the heavy stick on prosecution of ISIS, prosecution of a war. Is there anybody else? I think Marco Rubio. He just feels too young."

At the state level, Cruz also grabbed the number 2 spot in the latest New Hampshire poll for the first time. If he wins New Hampshire and Iowa then South Carolina should follow, putting him in prime position to win the nomination.

"He shouldn't be top three in New Hampshire," remarked Glenn on the significance of Cruz's move up. "I think it's going to be Cruz when it comes down to it. When you go in and you have to vote and you're looking at today's world, who do you think has the gravitas to really pull this off? Who is serious enough to be president of the United States in an Abraham Lincoln-style time?"

In Glenn's opinion, Ted Cruz not only has an excellent chance to win the nomination, but to be the president of the United States.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
