Glenn Makes Wild Prediction About Trump

Donald Trump has faced consistent pressure and scrutiny from Glenn, so his prediction Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program came as a surprise.

"I'm going to make a prediction about Donald Trump," Glenn said. "I could say he's going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that's obviously a foregone conclusion. Here's my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States."

Glenn has said Hillary Clinton is such a flawed candidate that his shoe or a rock could beat her. But her flaws are not the only thing stopping her from reaching the Oval Office.

"The key to success here is star power. And somebody from the outside that is going to shake things up," Glenn said.

Glenn has been adamant that Clinton would wipe the floor with Trump, so what led him to change his mind?

"After looking at the exit polls last night, I believe the number --- and, Stu, you'll have to look this up --- I believe the number was 30 percent of Democrats that said they will cross over and vote for Donald Trump," Glenn said. "Ten percent, probably maybe, maybe 20 percent will just stay home, and they'll say, 'It doesn't matter.' But if you can get 30 percent..."

A high percentage of Democrats voting for Trump could make the difference.

"That shows how weak of a candidate [Hillary] is."

GLENN: Hello, America. I'm going to make a prediction about Donald Trump. I could say he's going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that's obviously a foregone conclusion. Here's my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States.

JEFFY: Oh.

GLENN: And I don't think there's any way around it. I believe Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton. And here's why: The -- Hillary Clinton is such a flawed candidate. I've said this for a long time. My shoe would beat Hillary Clinton, right? Anything -- a rock will beat Hillary Clinton. That's why I said, "This is our biggest chance, our biggest chance to beat Hillary Clinton." And my theory was, because nobody is going to cross over to vote for the Republicans, per se. But if the Republicans would unite and they would unite around constitutional principles, we could win and restore the nation.

But what's happening is Donald Trump is a divisive figure. And a lot of people, you know, disagree with me. They think we're the divisive ones. Fine. Whatever. Those people who are supporting Donald Trump are, most of them, who have been on the bandwagon before, are not constitutionalists, not people who actually believed in the principles of the Tea Party. Some of them were Tea Party goers, but they have been so badly beaten and disenfranchised by the G.O.P., by the -- by the entire government, by culture, that they just want somebody to stop the madness.

But that's not the key to the success here. The key to success here is star power. And somebody from the outside that is going to shake things up. And I believe -- after looking at the exit polls last night, I believe the number -- and, Stu, you'll have to look this up. I believe the number was 30 percent of Democrats that said they will cross over and vote for Donald Trump. Now, 40 percent of Republicans say they're not happy with Donald Trump.

Let's say 20 percent actually stick by that. Let's say 20 percent actually stick by that and say, for principles, I'm not going to do it. I'll find another party, or I just won't for that level on the ticket.

Ten percent, probably maybe -- maybe 20 percent will just stay home, and they'll say, "It doesn't matter." But if you can get 30 percent -- when was the last time you ever saw a poll that said 5 percent of Democrats would vote for a Republican? Certainly not 30 percent in an exit poll that say they would cross over. That shows how weak of a candidate she is.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
