Election by Numbers: Cruz Cruising in New Wisconsin Poll

It looks like there is a Ted Cruz surge happening in Wisconsin, and Tuesday’s primary will go a long way in proving whether the Texas Senator has a viable path to getting 1,237 delegates or not. Cruz’s message has been resonating more and more as Donald Trump continues to prove he does not have a well thought-out plan and is shooting from the hip. It’s too soon to tell if his attacks on Heidi Cruz or his comments on abortion will affect his numbers at the polls, but it appears there is finally a crack in the Trump façade.

Co-host Stu Burguiere, broadcasting live from TheBlaze Studios in New York, broke down the latest polls and showed just how far Cruz has come in a month on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday.

Wisconsin Polling Last Month

• Trump 30%

• Cruz 19%

• Kasich 8%

Wisconsin Polling Post Carson and Rubio Withdrawal

• Cruz 40% +21

• Trump 30% even

• Kasich 21% +13

Glenn’s Analysis

Ted Cruz has been saying all along their polling showed Trump has a hard ceiling of 35-40% --- an idea Glenn says is beginning to be born out in the polls.

“It goes right to the theory all along, he's got a ceiling,” Glenn said. “His people are with him and that's all he's going to get.”

L.A. Times California Polling

In a state that many consider a potential big-win for Trump, the new L.A. Times poll shows it’s actually a lot closer than you might think. This could be huge since California is a winner-take-most state in terms of delegates.

• Trump 36%

• Cruz 35%

• Kasich 14%

New York Polls

In his home state, Trump does have a commanding lead, which is key for two reasons. New York has a rule where if a candidate collects more than 50% of the votes, they will gain a large delegate bonus. But a candidate must reach 20% to even get a share of any delegates. So even in a loss, a second place finish that keeps Kasich under 20% would be a win for Cruz.

• Trump 56%

• Cruz 20%

• Kasich 19%

Pennsylvania and the Kasich Effect

John Kasich literally has no mathematical possibility of winning enough delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot, but apparently the people of Pennsylvania haven’t heard. Trump does hold a slight lead but in the neighbor to his home state of Ohio, Pennsylvania is throwing in with Kasich and not choosing Cruz.

• Trump 33%

• Kasich 30%

• Cruz 20%

Pat Gray Poll

In a completely unscientific poll, co-host Pat Gray has shared the results of his own poll --- one that typically shows favorable results for Ted Cruz. Stu was anxious to hear the Pat Gray poll results from one state in particular but was greatly disappointed at what he heard.

“The only information, Glenn, that we have from Maryland poll-wise is the Pat poll. And we can go to Pat Gray now to check in on the Pat poll in Maryland. Pat,” Stu said.

“No, the Pat poll has been retired, Stu. The Pat poll is over,” Pat said. “Well, it had a couple of bad weeks, and it was retired.”

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
