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.

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
