Post Debate Analysis from Stu

GLENN: Stu, we really need to focus on a 60 seat majority in the Senate for the Democrats and focus on these local elections because a filibuster proof Senate and House is just going to be a nightmare.

STU: Yeah. On that note looking at some of the projections today, right now the Democrats are projected to win 59 Senate seats.

GLENN: That's amazing.

STU: Now, you've got Joe Lieberman out there on some things but I mean, it's even if they get to 59, they are going to be able to win over one or two. So I mean, it's going to be very, very difficult. But last night, of course, the debate, every post debate poll had two things in common. One was that Obama won handily. The other was that there were a lot more Democrats who voted in it. So I don't know what you could take out of that. I thought McCain did a really good job. We talked yesterday about him needing to win taxes as Democrats are suddenly favored on the tax issue 47 42. McCain did a very good job with that last night, by far his strongest debate performance. Rasmussen today has 255 likely electoral votes for Obama. When you think about that, 255. He needs 15 more to lock it up. If McCain were to lose Florida, Ohio or North Carolina, any one of them, it's over and a million other combinations that could get it there. But for our moment of hope today, Glenn, most of the national polls are showing a small tightening, a point or two. At least it doesn't seem to be getting worse. So I mean

GLENN: That's it? I was waiting for something that I thought that was just the preamble. Things aren't getting worse, but...

STU: It's like you say with illegal immigration. You need to turn the water off before you start cleaning up the house. So the movement has stopped going the other way. So at least we have that.

GLENN: Let's go with our predictions now.

STU: Yes, that's true, Glenn. Every day I predict two states that are 100% accurate. Never missed one state in my whole career at doing this, which is incredible when you think about it. Today we call Hawaii for Barack Obama and we call Alabama for John McCain. Our new electoral vote count, guaranteed 100% accurate, McCain 73, Obama 24.

GLENN: You know what, Dan, I don't know. Are you joining a union or something? You stink at your job lately. I mean, that's what it is. He's going to organize a union. The Glenn Beck program's going to be unionized. As soon as Obama is in, they are going to, you know, make this card check thing and just boom.

STU: Well, as Obama said in the debate last night, he is going to make sure that Dan the producer can

GLENN: No, it was Joe the plumber.

STU: It was something like that.

GLENN: Or was it Joe the candlestick maker.

STU: There's somebody like that that is going to have a great life once he becomes President.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
