Election by Numbers: Trump and Cruz Tie With Equal Delegates

The media will tell you Donald Trump won the day on March 8. The real story, though, is about delegates.

"It's an amazing thing that happened last night because it is all about delegate counts. And over the last two election days, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have tied, each 121 delegates," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

As the race now turns to the winner take all states, Florida just might be Marco Rubio’s last stand. In last night’s races, the senator failed to reach 20% in all states, reached 15% in just one and finished in single digits in both Michigan and Mississippi.

Co-host Stu Burguiere broke down the numbers to get a better understanding of what matters to voters and how the candidates stack up.

Evangelical Vote

The term "evangelical" is defined in a more flexible way by some. In polls that break down evangelicals by weekly church attendance, Ted Cruz has significant leads. Using a broader definition, Donald Trump cleans up. In Michigan, he edged out Cruz in the overall evangelical vote 45-40.

One-on-One

With Rubio’s poor performance of late, his head-to-head numbers versus Trump have taken a dip. He now trails in a national poll, losing to Trump by 5, 46-41. The same poll has Cruz defeating Trump 43-41.

Entrenched vs. Late Deciders

In voters who made their decision more than a month ago, Trump dominates the field, leading 60-15. On the flip side, those deciding in the last month lean toward Cruz, 39-35.

High Negative Marks

In the latest ABC national poll, Trump's negative marks continue to be astronomically high. With nearly 75% of people polled believing he is dishonest, calloused, inexperienced and lacking a presidential temperament.

Believes Trump to be honest: 27%

Believes Trump to be empathetic: 26%

Believes Trump to have the right experience: 26%

Believes Trump to have the right temperament: 25%

National Poll

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll show Cruz gaining and a new candidate bringing up the rear. Rubio is now trailing Kasich nationally. His best poll in his home state of Florida still has him trailing by eight, and an average of all polls has him trailing Trump by 17.

Trump: 30

Cruz: 27

Kasich: 22

Rubio: 20

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
