Election by Numbers: Playing the Coulda-Woulda-Shoulda Game

Despite what the media wants you to believe, the delegate count in the Republican primary is quite close. Co-host Stu Burguire broke down the numbers Thursday on The Glenn Beck Program, playing the coulda-woulda-shoulda game to show the difference a single state can make.

Here's how things currently stand:

Current Total Delegate Count

Donald Trump: 319

Ted Cruz: 226

Marco Rubio: 110

John Kasich: 25

So, just for grins (or complete frustration), let's pretend one state voted differently. What would the impact have been?

“This is going to infuriate you. And I'm calling out South Carolina specifically,” Stu said. “If you were in South Carolina and you were thinking to yourself, 'Oh, I'm going to go out for Ted Cruz, but maybe I won't make it, maybe I won't make those additional phone calls,' think about this for just a second. We were talking about this being a runaway election for Donald Trump. He's way ahead. Again, Donald Trump won South Carolina. You can't take it away from him. But if Ted Cruz had won South Carolina, what would this picture look like?”

Total Delegate Count if Cruz Had Won South Carolina

Ted Cruz: 276

Donald Trump: 269

Marco Rubio: 110

John Kasich: 25

“South Carolina, you're dead to me. You're dead to me,” Glenn said, jokingly.

This is proof positive that the race for the Republican nomination is far from over. Just one state --- one vote --- can make the difference.

"Just know this," Co-host Pat chimed in, "Kansas, Nebraska, you're on our watch list right now."

With primaries this Saturday and more in the coming weeks, don’t buy into the media hype. Learn from South Carolina. Every vote counts.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
