Glenn appeared this weekend on NBC's Meet the Press, reinforcing his stance on never voting for Trump but also stating, "If you look at the polls . . . Hillary Clinton wins every time [against] Donald Trump."
PolitiFact put Glenn's assertion to a fact-check --- and it turns out he's right.
"While I was on Meet the Press, PolitiFact --- look it up --- PolitiFact went and looked and said, 'Yes. Glenn Beck is right.' Every single time they've taken a poll, 56 or 58 of these polls have been done, only the very early polls showed him in a statistical dead heat," Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program.
The source Politifact used to rate Glenn's statement is a compilation of national surveys by RealClearPolitics.com. Since a Fox News poll dating back to Feb. 15, Clinton has won every hypothetical head-to-head matchup with the billionaire. The website’s aggregation of the most recent polls gives Clinton a spread of 10.5 percentage points over Trump.
But the trend has been clear for the past year. If you go back to polls released in May 2015 (before Trump was officially a candidate), Clinton bested Trump in 51 of 58 matchups. In 43 of those surveys, she outpolled Trump by a percentage that's greater than the margin of error.
Trump has come out on top in only five polls. The last time was in a February USA Today/Suffolk survey, where the two-point spread was within the margin of error. That poll has not been repeated.
The bottom line is every recent poll shows Clinton clearly ahead of Trump. The only polls that favor Trump are old and have mostly been superseded by newer surveys showing that Clinton has pulled ahead.
"The time to talk about whether he can beat Hillary or not is right now --- not after he becomes the nominee," Glenn said.
