Glenn Beck: 84% say America on the wrong track


Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

GLENN: Now, let me give you now the latest stats on right track, wrong track. Now, this is something that I don't like. I don't like this poll because because it never really tells you

PAT: What does it mean?

GLENN: Barack Obama and I can both say we're on the wrong track. He wouldn't, because he could say that because he would be looking at the same conditions but look at the solutions differently. Say, yeah, well, we're on the wrong track because the Republicans are whatever and I could be saying that we're on the wrong track because we're too socialist and he's he might say we're on the wrong track because we’re not socialist enough. So, it's too nonspecific, but I want to give it to you because if you add another stat to it, it does take on meaning. Right track, wrong track is now at 80 percent wrong track?

PAT: Uh huh.

STU: Well, it depends on what group you're talking about. Rasmussen does a split of basically mainstream voters and the political class. You want the political you want the mainstream voters.

GLENN: Mainstream voters.

STU: Yeah. Mainstream voters 84% say that the country is going the wrong direction, off the track.

GLENN: Okay. 84%. Now, give me the political class and then give me the distance between each other. Now, what the political class is are those in Washington, those who are the ruling class.

STU: Right. The political class is saying 67% of them are saying that we're on the right track. So, the political

GLENN: Almost polar opposites from the people. The people who are in the political class, the ruling class, are almost polar opposite.

PAT: A little out of touch.

STU: Yeah. You've got a 51 point swing there between the two classes and

GLENN: No, no. A what?

PAT: 51 points

STU: 51 point swing. So, if you figure 67 I don't have all the breakouts here, but you figure it's 76, 33 in favor of it for the political class and 6 to 84

GLENN: No, no. You have the add the degree of swing. You have to add the 67 or 60 whatever and 84 to show the degree. You're going in the opposite direction, it's 180 degrees.

STU: Hum. I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for there. I mean, the typical way I would calculate a swing in the polls would be two groups and the difference between them in support which here would be 67 to 16a 51 point swing, which is about the largest swing I've ever seen on anything.

GLENN: No, no. Add these two add these two numbers together and you see your distance. If you add these two numbers, you will see the difference between us. 87% say we're going this direction

STU: 84, yeah.

GLENN: Whatever. And 67 are going the other direction.

PAT: Yes

STU: Yes.

PAT: I see. So

STU: There's probably something above my head there.

PAT: So you're saying we're going different directions on the same line. So, they're 67 points over here and you're 84 over there, you would add those together.

GLENN: This doesn't make any sense to you?

STU: Because it's the same question.

PAT: 148 is what you're going for. I'm not sure it works that way, but I see

GLENN: You're making fun of me. Our toying with me now, like a little mouse.

PAT: I'm just trying to figure out where you're going and I think that's it. Right? You're saying a linear line.

GLENN: Linear line. You're going

STU: This isn't working, no, it's not inches if you have two sides line. One says right direction and you use that for the politician elites and then the other says wrong direction.

GLENN: He's making fun of me.

PAT: Which is 84% of the people.

GLENN: He is absolutely making fun of me.

PAT: I'm trying to make it work for you. I'm trying to get to that 148 number that you want, and sadly

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: I don't think I can I helped you do it.

STU: If you say that the political class is a plus 34 on this question, which 67 to 33, say, and you say the mainstream is minus 68, add 84 to 16, then you can get to 102 point swing if you want to go that way.

PAT: Okay.

STU: I don't know why we want to go that way. That's just doubling the

PAT: If you take both ends of the tangent and you multiply it by pi

STU: Yeah. Exactly. Then you've got to go at least 9 digits.

PAT: Then you take X and you multiply it by relativity over Y

STU: And you put it in the pythagorean theorem.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: You've got work that in there.

PAT: Of course you do.

STU: Once you get that in

PAT: You carry the 2, bring down the 1.

STU: Divide by the upper tractor.

PAT: Then you get Glenn's number of 143 point swing.

STU: 143,000 point swing.

PAT: Yet, when you multiply that number by 100

STU: Thousand

PAT: Thousand

STU: Million, and then you're there.

PAT: And you're right there. It's just that easy. It's just that easy.

GLENN: You're just going to keep going, aren't you?

STU: We have some more time in the show.

GLENN: Just keep going,

STU: There's a gigantic swing there.

PAT: There's a gigantic swing there, no matter whether it's 51 points or 17,386 as Glenn would like it to be. It's big.

STU: Really big.

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."
