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 --

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?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.
