VOICE: Electoral votes, control of the Senate, popular vote count, the latest poll, control of the House, up-to-the-minute rumors and falsehoods. Fancy buzzwords, and more. It's a political geek election report on the Glenn Beck program.
STU: Well, Glenn, you talk about the Great Depression for three hours a day every day and somehow --
GLENN: I do.
STU: This is the most, the biggest downer in the entire program lately, the political geek update where honestly like, you look at the polls and there's not a lot of positive. I thought McCain was good in the last interview. He is going to have to be that good in the debate and everything else to have to turn this thing around. Right now if you take the polls and you look at the electoral map, you just take it as they are. Right now Obama's winning, which everyone knows. But let's get aggressive here. Let's start flipping some states for McCain. Let's say he comes back in some of these states and we flip Florida to McCain and then we flip North Carolina to McCain and Virginia and Ohio and New Mexico and Nevada and Colorado. We flip all of those that are currently Obama states to McCain.
GLENN: Holy cow.
STU: Obama still wins. That's the way it is right now. Now, that's pretty sad.
GLENN: Well, again, Reagan was losing to Carter until five days before the election.
STU: It's important to point out, anything can happen, especially in a one-on-one thing.
GLENN: You know what, I tell you my gut just says -- I can never predict these things. My gut just says that there's too much question out on Obama, that there's just too much, that when people close the door or pull that curtain closed, they are just going to say, "I just don't trust the man. There's just too much out there."
STU: There is a lot out there. And there are some polling that would describe what you're talking about, that people do get a little -- I mean, there are some things that are tightening. Our moment of hope today would be that McCain can do everything I just described and flip also Missouri or New Hampshire or something. That's your moment of hope, although we do also have the fact that the guy who had Mark Foley's seat has his own sex scandal and maybe we'll pick up at least one seat in the House.
GLENN: Thank you, Stu for -- is there more?
STU: I've got to call my last two states.
GLENN: All right, call your last two states. Jeez, these are so way out on a limb, they are going to be --
STU: As you know, 100% accuracy so far, Glenn, in the predicted states.
GLENN: We haven't even had the election yet.
STU: Today we call Vermont for Barack Obama and Tennessee for John McCain. Our official electoral count, John McCain 55, Barack Obama 17.
GLENN: The Dow, the big board, is suffering technical glitches. It has stopped again. It is frozen now twice today.
STU: This is one way to turn the economic situation around.
GLENN: Just turn it on. Just unplug it. Can we just unplug it? It was up one point. Now it's up 385 points and it just --
STU: Glenn, can I break some news here?
STU: I believe we now confirm that the Dow Jones board is running windows Vista. Because, well, it's just frozen because I know. I looked at my stupid computer today.
GLENN: You know what it is? The government is investing in stocks. That's what it is! They might have said, you know what, let the government run the big board.
STU: This thing has run perfectly for decades and the day the government gets involved, it just freezes.
GLENN: Hmmm, that's weird, huh?
