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.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.
