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.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
