Interesting: America's Top Ten Governors Have One Thing in Common

In a recent poll by Morning Consult, more than 85,000 registered voters across America evaluated the job performance of their governors in the first quarter of 2017. Interestingly, the top 10 all have one thing in common: they're all Republicans. Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) ranked dead last.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Who is the most popular governor in America?

STU: Okay. Yeah, so this is incredible actually. Let me give you the top ten. Number ten, Gary Herbert from Utah, 64 percent.

GLENN: Number ten. Wow.

STU: Number ten. Tied with number nine --

GLENN: I like Gary. I don't necessarily like his policies. I don't know much about it, but I like him. He's a nice guy.

STU: There's four governors tied at 64 percent. Gary Herbert. Greg Abbott, here in Texas.

GLENN: Greg Abbott is only at 64 percent?

STU: Pretty good.

GLENN: Greg Abbott should be the number one governor in America.

STU: Good for top ten. That's pretty good.

GLENN: Oh, that's -- that is an insult to Greg Abbott.

STU: Tennessee Bill Haslam. And Nevada's Brian Sandoval, all have 64 percent. In sixth place, Arkansas. Asa Hutchinson, at 67 percent.

GLENN: Wait a minute. So far -- aren't all of these -- all of these guys are Republican, aren't they?

STU: So far, all Republicans.

JEFFY: Yes, they are.

STU: Fifth place, South Dakota, Dennis Daugaard, 68 percent.

PAT: Another Republican.

GLENN: Don't know about him.

STU: Also tied at 68 percent, Vermont's Phil Scott. Also a Republican.

GLENN: In Vermont.

STU: In Vermont. Kind of interesting.

GLENN: Wow.

STU: Number three, North Dakota's Doug Burgum at 69 percent.

PAT: Also a Republican.

STU: Republican. Number two, Maryland's Larry Hogan.

PAT: Can't be a Republican. And yet he is.

STU: Also a Republican.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me.

PAT: That's amazing.

STU: 72 percent approval in Maryland for a Republican.

PAT: In Maryland. Wow.

GLENN: What has he done? What pact with the devil has he made?

PAT: Wow. Wow. That's amazing, isn't it?

GLENN: Yeah, that's incredible.

PAT: A Republican governor with 73 percent approval in Maryland.

GLENN: And nine points higher than Greg Abbott.

PAT: That's crazy. Jeez.

GLENN: Greg Abbott -- I'm telling you, America, Greg Abbott is the greatest -- I mean, I would vote for him in 2020.

STU: I don't think he's running in 2020.

GLENN: No, he's not.

STU: Against a Republican.

PAT: For president.

GLENN: For president. He's remarkable. He's remarkable.

PAT: You could remark upon him.

STU: And you just did.

PAT: You do have the ability to remark --

GLENN: Shut up. Shut up.

STU: It's historic. It's happened in history.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Number one governor approval rating in America, Massachusetts' Charlie Baker. 75 percent.

GLENN: Holy cow.

STU: A Republican.

PAT: Also a Republican.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. The whole top ten.

STU: The whole top ten are all Republicans. Number one, number two, and number four, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Vermont, Republicans.

JEFFY: Amazing.

PAT: That's crazy.

STU: I mean, look, they might not be as conservative as you might want -- and, by the way, number 11 is Nathan Deal from Georgia.

GLENN: Where do you have to go to get to the first Democrat?

STU: Number 12, New York's Andrew Cuomo at 62 percent, which I wonder why. If that --

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: But he just fits New York. I mean, you know.

STU: Yeah, well, obviously you've got the history there with his father.

GLENN: Everybody is screaming, if I could just get another New York liberal to choose from --

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.
