Glenn Beck: Poll re-do



GLENN: By the way, on our poll yesterday we asked if you had to vote today, who would you vote for. In a mythical three-party ballot, would you vote for Barack Obama, would you vote for John McCain or would you vote for George W. Bush. I would say that this is quite possibly -- see if you think this is accurate, that of the mainstream talk shows, of the big three here that this is the most unfriendly zone listener-wise for George W. Bush?

STU: Yeah, I'm much more pro George W. Bush than you are. You annoy me sometimes. You are against him.

GLENN: Right. But wouldn't you say for an audience makeup, this is probably the least -- this is where he's popular the least?

STU: Yeah, I would say very annoyed at him as well at times, over certain things.

GLENN: Prescription drugs and --

STU: Spending certainly.

GLENN: I mean, don't start. Don't start.

STU: What about the list.

GLENN: You don't want to go down to the Compean and Ramos, let's not get there.

STU: So there's been a frustration with this guy, shockingly enough.

GLENN: So if you had to vote today, who would you vote for. Barack Obama, 2.5%. John McCain, 20%. George W. Bush, 76.5%.

STU: That's amazing. That's a --

GLENN: And you know what? I agree. If I could vote for George W. Bush, it would be a handgun or George Bush. I would either kill myself or vote for him. I don't -- I mean, I -- I regretted my vote in 2004.

STU: 2004, it was one month. The election was in November.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: By December? You didn't --

GLENN: Spring. Spring of 2005. Come on, Stu. It was right after the election. I was on the air during the election saying, uh-uh --

STU: You didn't like certain things about him then.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: It wasn't exactly, "I believe John Kerry," was not the guy you were going to.

GLENN: No. No, no. I would be in the same place. I probably would have voted for George W. Bush but I know now more than I did then. Now I've got real evidence, not my guy. That's how -- I mean, I'm like, oh, yeah, George Bush, I'll take that.

STU: I'm surprised at the percentage. I mean --

GLENN: 76% of this audience.

STU: You've got to believe it. Again this is a poll that goes out through the newsletter which is, it's not as wide open as a web poll. I mean, we've gotten pretty reasonable results of our audience in there, and if that's accurate, that is a legitimate problem for John McCain. I mean, like --

GLENN: Again, send it out again today, will you?

STU: Same poll?

GLENN: Same poll. And I'm asking if you are a web, or a newsletter subscriber, this is a free subscription at GlennBeck.com, it's a free subscription. Send it out again, Dan, and say we know that you got this poll yesterday but Glenn wants you to take it -- he wants you to really think about it.

STU: The first time we sent it out, we didn't even talk about it on the air in advance because we wanted to get what your vibe was.

GLENN: These are hundreds of thousands of people that are voting. So it is -- I mean, for it to be that distant, it is a stable sample of this audience.

STU: Yeah, and it's not one of those polls necessarily that you would just see on the website and spam and it's not --

GLENN: Right.

STU: I mean, you could -- you know, you could see a lot of that.

GLENN: I'd like to see if it's as stable yesterday as it was yesterday.

STU: Like I just -- look. They keep saying, well, John McCain's trying to run for his third term of George Bush. I just, my ration to that is, really? Can I sign him up for that? Can I guarantee that?

GLENN: I don't want a third term of George W. Bush. I do not want a third term of George W. Bush but if I had that option between those two clowns, I'd take it. That's amazing.

STU: If that's legitimate as it seems in these things, and these have been generally good measures, that's a problem for him.

GLENN: Because I'm not a supporter. I'm a guy -- I mean, I'm not a supporter on some things. I'm a big time anti-George W. Bush on other things. And for me to say, okay, I'd take another four years of this, without even questioning it, that's a big deal.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
