Glenn Beck: Happy with the candidates?


RELATED STORY


Zogby Poll: 48% of Voters Dissatisfied With Candidates

GLENN: So Stu, give me the polls that we were just talking about with the Insiders. The poll numbers for how satisfied are you as a Democrat, independent or a Republican with the candidate choices that are out there.

STU: Right. You start with Democrats are 82% satisfied and 18% not satisfied. And this is from about two weeks ago where Obama was clearly the, you know, big frontrunner but hadn't completely locked it up yet.

GLENN: Like to see where that number is today because that includes Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

STU: Yes, although Clinton was, I mean, you know, clearly behind at this point, you know.

GLENN: I understand that. Well, no, how do you mean she was clearly behind?

STU: I mean, she -- you know, it had been called by the media already.

GLENN: Yeah, it had been called by the media, but did you notice that Barack Obama, his polling numbers went down? After that big spike, she started polling better.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, she was winning all the way -- she was clobbering him it the end.

STU: Yeah, after the media called it, she destroyed him.

GLENN: Destroyed him, destroyed him. But anyway you can understand that. I would like to see that number now that it's going to be Barack Obama because I wonder how many Clinton supporters now say, I can't vote for, I can't, I can't vote for Barack.

STU: Yeah, I think that's a fake -- I think that's a fake group. I don't think they really exist.

GLENN: I think there's maybe, out of the Democratic party I bet you there's 5%.

STU: Yeah, maybe 5%. Maybe 5%. But it's very small. This whole idea that 27% of Clinton supporters are going to vote for John McCain, forget it.

GLENN: You know what, then again, once you start knowing that he is the most liberal guy in the Senate.

STU: With the exception of the Operation Chaos people, what person who's voting for Hillary Clinton is going to be upset at the most liberal senator in the Senate? If you are voting for Hillary Clinton already.

GLENN: No, no, no, I know a lot of Democrats, I know a lot of Democrats in the middle of the country, you know, in blue state territory that are Blue Dog Democrats, that don't -- they don't agree with, you know, pull our troops out now immediately. They're not Nancy Pelosi.

STU: What are they voting for Hillary Clinton for then?

GLENN: They are not Nancy Pelosi people. Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton, I think that a lot of people look at Hillary Clinton -- I can't speak for Democrats, but as I read it the people who are the Blue Dog Democrats will say I'll take Bill Clinton's policies. He triangulated, you know? He wasn't George Bush and, you know, he was as far to the left as George Bush really is in many ways, you know, with an exception of the war policies, he did change but that didn't go well. So people who were in that mindset look at Bill Clinton much more as a centrist and so they say Hillary Clinton will be a centrist because she's got Bill with him and they're triangulaters. That's not who Barack Obama is.

STU: I don't know. To me these people have almost identical policies. I mean, their policies are almost identical. This whole idea of going back and forth between them has been stupid the entire time. They believe the same things.

GLENN: Yes, they do but they're not the same people and they're not -- I mean, Hillary Clinton did not say she would raise the capital gains tax out of fairness.

STU: No, but she still said she was going to raise it.

GLENN: But not out of fairness.

STU: I don't know. How many people know that? The bottom line is they're both -- I don't even know if anyone knows that both want to raise the capital gains tax, let alone why they're doing it. But the bottom line is they both want to do it and they both want to raise a lot of other taxes, too. You know, to me if you're -- there's a clear choice on a lot of these issues and I think a lot of Democrats they vote over things like the war and they vote over things like healthcare and there's a huge difference between McCain and those two on those issues. There's not much difference at all between Obama and Clinton. I mean, you're talked about, you know, 1-A and 1-B.

GLENN: I don't think so. I don't think so. You are right in what they say but not necessarily what they do. You are wrong, I think.

STU: I think you're wrong.

GLENN: No, you're wrong.

STU: You're wrong!

GLENN: You're wrong!

STU: Who's going to vote for me?

GLENN: Okay. So the other thing on Barack Obama is completely lost now. I'm sorry, riddled with ADD. It's completely gone.

STU: Well, I apologize for interrupting you.

GLENN: Go ahead. So the next poll number.

STU: The independents are 44% satisfied with the crop of candidates and 55% not satisfied.

GLENN: Total sense to me. Makes total sense.

STU: That doesn't -- I was a little surprised because I thought McCain was -- yeah, he was supposed to be the independent candidate. I don't know that he is.

GLENN: But I think McCain, I just think McCain, because he's up against Barack Obama, he looks like Bob Dole. Remember, I loved Bob Dole. I thought Bob Dole was a good guy. I thought he was a strong conservative. I liked him. I liked him a lot. But next to Bill Clinton he just looked like, you know, grandpa. Ronald Reagan never looked like grandpa. He pulled that off well. Ronald Reagan always pulled that off well, and he wasn't running next to somebody who looks like, you know, he just got off the basketball court and he's 12. You know what I mean?

STU: Yeah, Obama just looks, he's in shape.

GLENN: Yeah, he just looks healthy, he just looks -- I mean, honestly he just looks like a guy who's just like, whew, I just got off the tennis court, man, what, we're doing a debate? What? You know what I mean?

STU: Yeah. It's clearly a huge -- I mean, clearly the Democrats are the only party that have realized we don't just have radio anymore.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: We have television now and apparently there's only one party that recognizes that. But what I find is absolutely amazing is the Republicans, how satisfied are you with you are current candidate. 24% satisfied, 76% not satisfied.

GLENN: You know what this comes from? This is proof positive that we should have runoffs after -- if you don't get -- you should have to get 50%. You should have to get 50%. If you don't get 50%, you've got another one. This is, you know, Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani. Because nobody, nobody that I know of was picking John McCain. Now, I know obviously he was picked, but he was picked, I believe, because everybody else was splitting it. You know, there's a bad history of people getting to power with 30% of the vote. Now we've got Republicans with 24% solidarity behind John McCain. 24% say they're happy with John McCain.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That's because everybody was splitting it earlier. Because we had a whole field of really good candidates and we split it up. The Democrats didn't have what we had. I thought we had some really good choices in there. People were passionate about those choices and it ends up that we're sitting here with the guy everyone is the least passionate about.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
