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.”

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how "rabid partisanship" is causing President Joe Biden and his administration to make the political decisions directly responsible for the "absolute crisis at the border" — and it's getting worse every day.

Cruz described how the Biden administration is caving to the "hard left" agenda that supports open borders and views U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as the equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan or Nazis. He listed the Trump-era policies Biden has overturned, including halting construction of the border wall, re-instituting the failed policy of "catch and release," and ending the "Remain in Mexico" policy — "a big foreign policy victory of the Trump administration."

Cruz then sounded off on the left's unbelievable hypocrisy concerning the "kids in cages" narrative, and the Biden administration's "laughable" excuse for not allowing journalists access to border facilities.

"For four years of the Trump presidency, Democrats and the media talked every day about kids in cages. What they ignored is that Barack Obama built the cages. You and I both went to those cages during the Obama administration," Cruz told Glenn. "They utterly ignored that. And now, Joe Biden is making the cages bigger, and they're more full. And I'll tell you, it's truly a catastrophe. You take a facility, like the Donna facility in South Texas. It has a capacity of 250 people ... it currently has nearly 4,000."

"So, there's a reason why the Biden administration is trying to hide it. I'm flying down to the border tonight, and I'm bringing 18 senators down to the border to see firsthand what's happening. But the Biden administration is refusing to allow press to join us," Cruz continued.

"They won't allow reporters in and, Glenn, their justification is laughable on its face. They say, the reason why they won't allow reporters in is because reporters might have COVID. So one cameraman, a cameraman, and they say, 'No, too big of a COVID risk. We can't let the guy with the camera in.' It's because they want to hide the absolute disaster," he added. "You want to talk about COVID-19? Glenn, I'll give you a stunning statistic. Of the illegal immigrants that are being released in Arlington, Texas, they are testing positive for COVID-19 at a rate seven times higher than the U.S. population."
