Glenn Beck: Trump Will Beat Hillary

If you’ve listened to the Glenn Beck show over the past year, you’ll know that what you’ll get when you tune is 1) Trump Trump Trump (and usually discussed in a manner reserved for people like Hillary), 2) a paid product placement 3) commercials 4) some of that old time religious tent revival 5) more Trump bashing. OK, granted, my time listening is limited, usually only occurring on those days for brief periods when I go in to work at 11, so, at best, 3 hours a week. And I might flip over to a rock station or turn on the MP3 player. Because Glenn has seemed to lose his mind in his Trump Derangement Syndrome. Doesn’t mean he was wrong, but the apocalyptic discussion was a bit too much for me.

Anyhow, the other week Glenn was actively saying that it would be better for Hillary to win, because at least we know where she really stands, and that the GOP could just work to stop her. You know, because they’ve done such a bang-up job in stopping Obama, am I right? So, this must have give Beck extreme heartburn

(GlennBeck.com) Donald Trump has faced consistent pressure and scrutiny from Glenn, so his prediction Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program came as a surprise.

“I’m going to make a prediction about Donald Trump,” Glenn said. “I could say he’s going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that’s obviously a foregone conclusion. Here’s my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States.”

Glenn has said Hillary Clinton is such a flawed candidate that his shoe or a rock could beat her. But her flaws are not the only thing stopping her from reaching the Oval Office.

“The key to success here is star power. And somebody from the outside that is going to shake things up,” Glenn said.

One of the metrics Beck was looking at were the exit polls and the number of Democrats who say they will cross over to vote for Trump. And you couple that with the number of Dems who won’t vote for Hillary. Especially Bernie supporters.

Could it happen? Of course it could. Trump is making a play for the squishy Democrats, the Blue Dog Democrats, and even the Sanders Democrats. He’s actively wooing them.

Interestingly, he’s not attempting to woo conservatives, mainstream Republicans, libertarians, nor the #NeverTrump folks. It seems Trump isn’t interested in gaining their support. And then people wonder why many are #NeverTrump or are having a hard time deciding whether they’ll put on the gasmask to vote Trump in order to #NeverHillary.

Of course, national polls are relatively meaningless. It’s the state polls that will matter. Winning enough states to get him to 270 electoral college votes. We’ll have to see how his ground game goes, and what states he campaigns in.

I’ll throw this out there, from a conversation Wednesday: would Hillary actually be better than Trump? We know who Hillary is. She’s not as left as Obama. And she’d have Bill around to provide moderation and pragmatism. She’s certainly a, shall we say, scumbag, untrustworthy and shady, but, would she fight to look good or fight for ultra-far left policies? Probably the first. A GOP congress would only fight so hard to stop her. How hard would they fight to stop things Trump might do? We have really no idea how Trump would govern, only hints.
