The Democratic Party is Split

Reviewing the latest polls from this weekend, Glenn and his co-hosts discussed some of the problems the Democratic Party is facing on radio Monday.

Glenn pointed out about 20 percent of Democrats support Donald Trump --- and this could be pretty problematic for the Democratic Party.

"The Democrats are in trouble," Glenn said. "Their party has split and no one is willing to talk about this."

He explained why he thinks this is happening.

"There are many Democrats that don't feel America should be knocked off its perch," Glenn said. "They believe that we are a country that has done more good than has done bad. But that is not the feeling you get from many Democrats that run the progressive or revolutionary wing of the Democratic Party."

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

Rubio leads by five over Hillary. Cruz leads by four over Hillary in Iowa. In New Hampshire, Rubio by 12, Cruz by four, over Hillary. Trump trails her in both states.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: Yeah, because I just said that stat about 30 percent of Republicans would never go out and vote for. This is in Iowa, would never go out and vote for Trump. And people are responding, well, that means 70 percent would vote for Trump. Yeah, that would be the worst number in history. If only 70 percent of a party would vote for their own nominee in a two-person race, that would likely be the worst number in history.

GLENN: It would be a bloodbath. People don't see it coming. It would be a bloodbath, even with Hillary, I think could be the lowest turnout of all time. Because there will only be a small percentage of both parties that are really diehard gung-ho.

STU: There will be a lot that really dislike the other party's nominee though.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: This would be one of those where -- I mean, there would be a lot of people motivated just out of, I can't stand the other person.

GLENN: Well, but you also have to take into account that there are that Democrats that do like Donald Trump. There are 20 percent of Democrats that say -- and this is where a lot of his support is coming from. I love these constitutionalists. This guy on Facebook, you know, accused me of -- "I used to listen to you because you were the Tea Party. You were the guy who was telling us about the Constitution. Now you're giving up on Donald Trump, and you won't vote for him."

I love the comment. So he said, "I hope that when Donald Trump becomes president, he deports you."

STU: Where?

PAT: That's very constitutional.

GLENN: Very constitutional. That would be the kind of constitutional powers that Donald Trump and his supporters do understand.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: But, anyway, let's look at Donald Trump and his Democratic support here. What does this say? This is the real story. The real story is how weak Hillary Clinton is and how much trouble the Democrats are in. The Democrats are in trouble. Their party has split and no one is willing to talk about this. The party is a party that has left all of the New Deal Democrats away. They don't have anyplace to go. You have to go to a socialist and, quite honestly, people who many people think hate America. You have to go on that apology tour.

So here's what's happening with the 20 percent that will go over to Donald Trump. And I mean this with respect for Donald Trump and for those 20 percent of the Democrats.

He's a huge progressive. If you look at what he has always believed historically -- and please don't tell me about, "Well, he's changed." Show me his pivot point. Everybody demanded a pivot point from Mitt Romney on these things. And you couldn't show one. I could only show the one on abortion. Couldn't show a pivot point anywhere else with Mitt Romney. He just said what he had to say to get elected. And we now know that's true because of what he has said after the election. He was saying whatever he had to say to get elected. Pivot points matter.

But the press has been lying about this race. They've been spending all this time talking about the split in the G.O.P. But the real split is the Democrats. The New Deal-style Democrats that actually -- now, here's the key -- that actually love their country but also love big, progressive government, have no place to go.

It isn't un-American to believe in big government or universal health care. But the Obama Democrats hate Israel, don't believe in our traditional allies, don't believe in our traditions. They have openly rejected God at the conventions. They are openly against guns. And let's be honest, want confiscation. The president has said so. We should pattern our gun laws after those in Australia and in England. That was gun confiscation.

There are many Democrats that don't feel America should be knocked off its perch. They believe that we are a country that has done more good than has done bad. But that is not the feeling you get from many Democrats that run the progressive or revolutionary wing of the Democratic Party.

So it's not a place that many Democrats, that I know, the Democrats that I like, the Democrats that I just -- I don't understand how they voted for Obama the first time, they now don't understand how they voted for him either.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
