We’re still about two weeks from New Hampshire primaries and it seems like a two-man race already for the Republicans. For the Democrats, it’s one man and a woman who is in both a precarious legal and voter support position. In the war between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck is on team Ted.
Obviously, Beck isn’t your first choice as a supporter. He serves as a defense against Palin’s support of Trump. More people listen to Beck than Palin on a daily basis, and getting him as a supporter also moves that loyal audience from candidates like Mike Huckabee who has no real chance of getting the nomination. At the same time, there are some people who would have voted for Cruz had Trump been hit by a bus who will no longer do so because of Glenn Beck.
Here’s what I find ironic. Glenn Beck is generally considered a nut because he talks about what the government is doing to us, wants to take us back to the good old days and eschewed the media to create his own empire. Those are all hallmarks of the Trump campaign.
