Election by Numbers: Arizona and Utah Results

Co-host Stu Burguiere broke down election results from yesterday's votes in Arizona and Utah. Trump said it himself --- Mormons don't like liars --- and Utah voters came out in force for Ted Cruz. In Arizona, border issues and early voting dominated, winning the state for Trump.

Utah Voting Results

Ted Cruz: 69%


Trump: 14%

"You know what is really remarkable to me is that the media last night was saying, 'You know, it's over. You know, Ted Cruz can't get at least to 50 percent. Can't get at least to 50 percent. Can't get at least to 50 percent," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "He's at 69 percent, and then all of a sudden it didn't matter. Utah didn't matter."

Stu agreed.

"That's the way they were presenting it all night. The big prize goes to Donald Trump. Also, Ted Cruz didn't come away empty-handed. He also won in Utah," Stu said.

Arizona Election Results

Donald Trump: 47%

Ted Cruz: 25%

Marco Rubio: 13%

John Kasich: 10%

The real story, however, is the delegate count. Here's how it played out:

Delegate Results in Arizona and Utah

Trump: 58

Cruz: 40

Kasich: 0

"We should say the good news for John Kasich yesterday is his delegate total brings him now to within only 23 delegates of Marco Rubio," Stu said. "So he's catching up to the guy who is out of the race."

Money is a key issue for the three remaining Republican candidates, as no one expected the primary battle to go on so long. Glenn went to opensecrets.org to learn who is donating to Kasich's campaign besides George Soros.

"So far, there's no names that are attached to this. But the last Federal Election Commission report that came out was on March 7th. And the website breaks down the money that's been donated to each of the campaigns," Glenn said. "Listen to this: Donald Trump is getting 7 percent of his contributions from large individual donations. ...He says he's funding. No, he's not. He's given his campaign a loan, he gets all of that money back. So Donald Trump gets 7 percent from big donors."

Additionally, Ted Cruz receives 58 percent from large donors. Hillary Clinton receives 76 percent from large donors. John Kasich receives 81 percent from large donors.

"Cruz is still waiting for anybody to come, you know, the big money to come in. The big money is not coming in. This is all on us."

So if you believe in Ted Cruz, it is radically important to support him right now at keepthepromise.org or tedcruz.org.

One key note, Donald Trump has yet to break the 50% mark in votes --- or in general election polls.

"He cannot break 50 percent. That means 50 percent of the GOP is not for him, will not cross the aisle for him," Glenn said. "That's deadly, absolutely deadly when it comes to the election after the nomination."

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

Do YOU think the candidates hit the mark during the second GOP debate? Do you support Trump's decision to skip two debates in a row? Let us know in the poll below!

Do you think the 2nd GOP debate was overall positive?

Did the candidates debate issues you are concerned about?

Do you think the "real" debate was between Trump and Biden in Michigan?

Do you think any of the other GOP candidates can beat Trump? 

Do you think Trump can beat Biden? 

Do you think any other candidate besides Trump can beat Biden?

Do you think it was a mistake for Trump to miss the first debate?

Do you think it was a mistake for Trump to miss the second debate?

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

9. Rhode Island
