Stu Reviews the Latest Polls for South Carolina and Nevada

According to Stu, there are two ways to look at polls --- one is if you like America and the other is if you don't. Unfortunately, the latest poll numbers will make the latter group happier.

Going into South Carolina, the polls show Trump at 35, Cruz at 17.5, Marco Rubio at 15.8, Bush at 15 and Kasich at 14. Ben Carson isn't really a factor in South Carolina.

The first real poll from Nevada also came out which has Trump at 45, Rubio at 19 and Cruz at 17. Jeb Bush has spent $100 million in Nevada, and he's at 1 percent.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

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

STU: So polls are out and such.

JEFFY: Oh, boy.

STU: And, well, it depends on what you -- like there's different ways to look at them.

PAT: I look at them with my eyes. How do you look at them?

STU: You're about to look at them with your ears because I'm going to read them.

PAT: Okay.

STU: But I will say there are a couple of ways to look at them. One is actually if you like America and the other is if you dislike it.

PAT: I like it.

STU: If you dislike it, these polls look great. They're fantastic. If you like it, yeah, this is not going to be as good for you.

JEFFY: You probably shouldn't look with your ears.

STU: No. You don't want to look with your ears on those.

So basically as we're leading to South Carolina right now, we're looking at about -- polls are very consistent. Donald Trump with a 17- to 18-point advantage. So, again, this would be a monumental all-time political choke if he were to lose this or, really, if it was anywhere close.

JEFFY: Wouldn't that be something?

STU: The question really is kind of coming more between second place. Right now, in the average poll, it's Trump at 35, Cruz at 17.5, Marco Rubio at 15.8. So those two are pretty tight.

Beyond that, really, there's not much going on. Bush has had a couple good polls. He did have one poll where he hit 15 in South Carolina. And, you know, Kasich has one poll where he hit 14. Ben Carson is really not a factor here at all.

But they also released the first real poll of what's going on in Nevada. It goes South Carolina, then Nevada for Republicans. It's the reverse of that for Democrats. Nevada is first.

For Republicans, Trump 45, Rubio 19, Cruz 17. I want to read the rest of them because of the last one. Cruz 7 percent, Kasich 5 percent, Jeb Bush 1 percent. Jeb Bush has spent $100 million, and he's at 1 percent in Nevada

PAT: Jebmentum.

STU: Jebmentum is coming.

JEFFY: Don't start making fun of Gilmentum. Okay. Jeb can't latch on to the strength of Jim Gilmore, I'll tell you that.

PAT: No, you're right. You're right.

STU: Jim Gilmore did get 0 percent in this particular poll.

JEFFY: Well, he decided not to run anymore.

STU: Why, Jeffy?

JEFFY: Move on, Stu. Move on.

STU: I want to give you this, this is a great one. I want to see if you can guess at this. This is a poll from PPP, which is a Democratic polling outfit.

PAT: I don't know it's necessary for you to use that kind of language on this show. I really don't.

JEFFY: We're listening with our ears.

STU: So PPP is known for --

PAT: Oh, my gosh, he did it again.

STU: -- slipping in questions that occasionally might make certain voters look bad. They're a Democratic polling outfit.

PAT: So you're saying the PPP people is a bunch of pee-pee?

STU: Well, it's a legitimate polling outfit, but they'll slip in questions like --

PAT: Like what?

STU: I don't know if they've ever done this particular one, but something like, "Do you believe Obama is a Muslim?" You know what I mean? To see if they can get that, "Well, 20 percent of Republicans have called Obama a Muslim."

PAT: Yeah.

STU: You know, they look for those results. So they decided to do this in South Carolina. The question was, "Are whites a superior race?"

PAT: Oh, I like this one. And, of course, those damnable racists, ignorant southern Republicans.

JEFFY: Ninety --

PAT: 98 percent said yes?

JEFFY: Ninety-eight. If it's not --

PAT: Almost 100 percent.

STU: They broke it down by ideology. So are whites a superior race? 7 percent of very conservative voters said yes. That's embarrassing.

PAT: That's embarrassing.

STU: That number is approximately 7 percent too high. 7 percent of very conservative voters said whites were a superior race. Now, somewhat conservative voters, 12 percent said whites are superior race. How about moderate voters? These are the people who are in the middle. They're just looking at the field, and they're saying, "You know what, I don't have a strong opinion on anything."

PAT: So these might be independents?

STU: Centrists, you know. 11 percent of centrists and moderates said whites are a superior race. Now, we get into somewhat liberal. These people obviously are going to be -- it's going to be way lower than the conservative number.

JEFFY: Right.

STU: Because these people are enlightened.

PAT: It's got to be under 7 percent. Right?

STU: It's got to be under 7 percent for sure.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Actually 12 percent of somewhat liberal voters said that whites are a superior race. But then you get to very liberal. And this is where it really --

PAT: Well, they are diverse. They're inclusive.

JEFFY: Minus. Negative.

STU: If 7 percent of very conservative voters said that whites are a superior race, that number is going to be way lower for --

PAT: It will be zero. I'm guessing 0 percent.

STU: Again, 7 percent of very conservative voters said whites are a superior race. 33 percent of very liberal voters said whites are a superior race.

JEFFY: My gosh.

PAT: You got to be -- it's 33 percent?

STU: That's amazing. 33 percent. Now, the sample sizes they would say are not big enough.

PAT: Wow. Wow.

STU: But 33 percent --

PAT: That's great.

STU: That is amazing. So next time someone on Facebook or something tells you that you're a racist because you like lower taxes, remind them that 33 percent of very liberal voters think whites are a superior race. There you go. Crazy.

PAT: That is absolutely amazing.

JEFFY: It sure is.

PAT: So what was the overall breakdown? Did they give that number? Overall, how many people thought whites were a superior --

STU: I think it was 10 percent overall.

PAT: Ten. That's pretty small.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Pretty small.

STU: It's still 10 percent too high.

PAT: It is.

STU: Very small. You'll always have somebody -- we've talked about before --

PAT: Liberals.

STU: Around -- anything under 11 percent of voters, you almost can't even count in polls like this. Because 11 percent of voters will believe anything: You know, no one has ever landed on the moon. That Paul McCartney was killed in 1967. That, you know, Elvis is alive today.

You can get 10 percent on almost anything.

PAT: Right.

STU: So there you go.

How RFK's example can help our nation in the wake of Trump's attack

Rowland Scherman / Contributor | Getty Images

How did you feel last Saturday when you heard the news that a former president of the United States narrowly avoided an assassin's bullet by a mere few inches? Were you angry at the media for their constant demonization of Trump and his conservative contingency? Did you blame the left for curating a political climate that fostered an assassination attempt?

In his immediate reaction to the news, Glenn pointed us back to a similar moment in American history: April 4th, 1968—the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

"The best speech I've ever heard given was by RFK Sr. on the day Martin Luther King was killed" - Glenn

Robert F. Kennedy, the father of current independent presidential candidate RFK Jr., was en route to Indianapolis when he heard the terrible news. His security team, expecting violent outrage across the country, asked RFK Sr. to turn around and head back to safety. But as Glenn said, RFK Sr. believed in the good in people and demanded to give his speech. He arrived in Indianapolis Park late in the day, and he addressed the crowd of predominantly black campaign supporters.

There were no riots in Indianapolis that night.

The message RFK Sr. gave that night wasn't one of vengeance, hatred, or hopelessness, but of calm and goodness. He appealed to the best in people. He called for people to set aside their differences, anger, fear, and confusion and instead express love and compassion towards one another. RFK Sr. asked for wisdom and the pursuit of justice so that we might be resolute in our unity as the country faces another difficult chapter.

What we need in this country is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another.

Glenn has made a similar plea to our nation—a plea for unity and not to lash out in fear and anger. Don't use this time to blame your friends and family who disagree with you politically for what happened or to tell them "I told you so!" Instead, reach out with compassion and grace. This is a turning point in American history. Let's turn it upward, away from hatred and violence and towards unison and compassion.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.


During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?
