VOICE: Attention, attention, procrastinators of America. If you blew up filing your taxes on April 15th and decided to file an extension, today is your tax day. It's October 15th. Remember, as Joe Biden says, paying taxes is patriotic and luckily if he gets in office, you'll have an opportunity to be more and more patriotic every year. This message brought to you by the fat lazy people of America.
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.
GLENN: Stu, I can't wait for the good news on which states you are going to call not for Obama today. You've gone way out on a limb.
STU: I really have, Glenn, and with 100% accuracy so far. I mean, you can never predict the future.
STU: But there's no reason to believe this will stop. It's a tidal wave of accuracy.
GLENN: What do we have today in political news?
STU: Well, the third debate is tonight, the final debate for the presidency. What are the things he needs to hit?
GLENN: He definitely needs to kick his ass.
STU: He can't just kind of --
GLENN: Stop with socialist ideas, he should probably say I'm going to unleash Sarah Palin like a pit bull in congress.
STU: I like that.
GLENN: Just sayin'. I'm gonna, you know, I'm gonna take a real strong look at that Fed and the Treasury and say I don't think we should give them all this power, and then take it back. I'm going to build a time machine so we can go back and -- these are just some of the things that I'm thinking. I'm just, I'm free-wheeling. We're in a safety tree, right?
STU: We're totally in a safety tree.
GLENN: We're just brainstorming here.
STU: Let it flow. You're freestyling.
GLENN: How about, you know what? I'm going to give it to -- I'm going to give it to Romney. I think I'm going to give it to Romney because I think he would probably have a better handle on the -- make people feel a little more comfortable on the economy.
STU: You are suggesting he ejects himself from the presidency?
GLENN: Yeah. Just, hey, that whole thing, you guys were wrong. That whole thing. I mean, I know you are already ahead, you are thinking I'm going to vote for Obama. You are wrong on that one, too. So I'm going to do the right thing.
STU: This is quite an interesting list. None of it's supported by polling, which is what I was going to give you a couple of --
GLENN: Okay, go ahead. What's the polling say?
STU: Well, let me give you two examples. Number one, a recent poll now says that Democrats are trusted on the issue of taxes 47-42%.
GLENN: Well, let me ask you this: When I say to you California is on fire, can you tell me which --
STU: Texas, Texas is also having all those huge economy problems.
GLENN: No, Texas isn't.
STU: Oh, they are the reverse?
GLENN: Yeah, when I say California is on fire, which -- do I mean in a literally or figuratively?
STU: That's a very good point.
GLENN: Both. It's a trick question. All right, anyway, go ahead.
STU: So 47-42 in taxes. McCain is not going to win this election if he can't convince people that Republicans have better tax policies. Of all things in the world, he's got to hit him on this 95% thing. He's got to hit him on this capital gains tax. He released a few very good proposals today. So hopefully he can actually articulate those to the people. Also in five swing states polling going on from Rasmussen which I believe is the most accurate pollster has every one of those states has more people extremely comfortable with Obama than they are with McCain. Again, can't lose on those two categories. So he's got a tough road to --
GLENN: Can you give some happy news?
STU: By the way --
GLENN: I mean, I'll invest in rope here in a second.
STU: We have our moment of hope here in a second. I shall --
GLENN: This is the moment of change?
STU: This is the moment of change, change in programming. In Hour 2 we have Scott Rasmussen, the pollster, on.
GLENN: Oh, good.
STU: For a half hour talking all sorts of polls, history, what's going on now. So that should be interesting.
STU: Our moment of hope, 80% of CEOs think that McCain has a better economic policy. And, of course, as we know Democrats have been telling us for years, CEOs are evil and run the world. So if that's true, then he should be cruising to victory.
GLENN: Right. But he's strangely not. More importantly on that, that's from Chief Executive Magazine. They did I think 751 CEOs, they asked him which one are you for. None of them were for either. They were for -- they were actually for Mitt Romney. They were just, "If I have these two to choose from, it's going to be McCain." And the question, the second question or third question was which presidential candidate do you fear, if any. 64% said Obama.
STU: Wow. You'd think, though, if CEOs run the world, then Mitt Romney would have been the candidate. I don't know how that didn't work out. Let's call our states here, Glenn. We've got to make sure. Very important. Projected winner. We can now with 100% confidence call Washington D.C. for Barack Obama and Louisiana for John McCain. Our electoral vote count, John McCain 64, Barack Obama 20.
