Have Early Voting and Trump's Non-existent Ground Game Already Decided the Election?

Early voting is underway in many states. Will it have an impact? Many believe it already has, including Glenn.

"It's already over. That's why Frank Luntz and everybody else said it would take literally a miracle to turn things at this point because it's already in -- the early voting has already happened. You know, tons of people have already cast their ballots," Glenn said Tuesday on his radio program.

It's estimated that eight to 10 million people might have already cast their votes.

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these timely questions:

• How many people usually vote in a presidential election?

• Why is it so important to vote even if you're not voting for president?

• By how many points does Donald Trump lead Hillary in Texas?

• Why hasn't Donald Trump put together a solid ground game?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Just talking about early voting and how that's going and the polls. And now there are -- there are indications that the Republicans are going to lose the Senate. Please, go out and vote for the --

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: -- the G.O.P. candidate -- if you are sitting in a place that has a Marco Rubio, please, go out and vote for the G.O.P. in the Senate and the House. If we lose the Senate and the House, there's no stopping any of it. There's no stopping any of it.

Oh, well, you are the one -- no, no. Donald Trump is three points ahead in Texas. He should be 20 points ahead in Texas. He is three.

In Florida, he had no offices for a ground game. This is all about ground game.

JEFFY: With early voting, it would seem that there's no really need for this October surprise. Because, I mean, early voting started yesterday in Texas -- or, yesterday, here in Texas. And they're turning out in record numbers. So by the time, you get to the October surprise in the next seven days --

GLENN: No, I think the October surprise --

JEFFY: They've already voted. They've already video.

GLENN: Yeah. It's already over. That's why Frank Lunts and everybody else said, "It would take literally a miracle to turn things at this point because it's already in -- the early voting has already happened. You know, tons of people have already cast their ballots.

STU: Right. It was 6 million as of this weekend. So probably eight to ten by now.

GLENN: Yeah. And there's -- what is it? 100 million that vote. Or 50 million.

STU: 130. Yeah.

GLENN: 130. So that's bigger than I thought it was.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I thought -- it might have been as little 70. Because I thought -- they win usually with about 45 million.

STU: Yeah, 65.

PAT: Sixty-five.

STU: Sixty-five.

GLENN: Sixty-five?

STU: Look, it's a lot of votes. And you can make that up. If he wins big on Election Day, he can win it.

GLENN: Yeah. Easy. It's who turns out. You require a ground game.

STU: Right.

GLENN: There are places where he has no one -- literally -- think of this, no one in a phone bank making phone calls. How is that possible?

STU: Right.

GLENN: If you want to win, you don't have big rallies in stadiums. You have quiet numbers of thousands making phone calls, knocking on doors, taking people. "Hey, can I get you to -- can I get you to a ballot? Can I get you to the voting booth?" He's got none of that.

STU: And early voting doubles, triples, quadruples the value of a ground game. Because the theory is, I get Glenn out to the polls. I can focus on Glenn. Glenn, you got to come vote for my candidate. You got to come vote for my candidate.

GLENN: Right now.

STU: You go vote. Then I never have to think of you again, and I can move all those resources to Jeffy, to get Jeffy out to the polls. And then I get Jeffy. And he goes out and votes. And then I can put all my focus on Pat, to get Pat out to the polls.

GLENN: Instead of doing what Donald Trump is doing, which is having to worry about Glenn, Pat, and Jeffy --

STU: For the whole time.

GLENN: -- the whole time.

STU: Because they don't have any ground game, and they're just hoping that he can convince them in these large rallies. It hasn't worked before.

GLENN: It's insane. You know what, it is as bad as Giuliani's plan of, "I'm not going to do anything until Florida. Then I'm going to win."

STU: And guess who is highly involved in this campaign too? Is Rudy.

GLENN: Right. This is the worst-run campaign I've ever seen in American history. It will go down -- where Barack Obama went down as the most efficient campaign ever run, this is going to go down as the exact opposite.

STU: Right. Right.

GLENN: And don't -- don't tell me I own it. Because I warned you about these very things a year ago: The guy is not serious. He doesn't have a ground game. He doesn't have the connections. He doesn't even know how the system even works.

Remember when his ground game was saying, "Hey, you still have three days if you're in Washington. You can go ahead and vote." And they were sending that to DC, and the vote was in Washington State. And the vote had already happened the week before.

I mean, they are that bad.

(laughter)

GLENN: So nobody -- no --

STU: Oh, man.

GLENN: No group of people who are anti-Trump can lead to the loss or the close race that is happening just here in Texas. It's impossible.

You have to be completely incompetent to lose or to be this close to losing Texas.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
