Why is Glenn Beck bullish on Costco?
Not because he thinks it's time to stock up before potential unrest due to Trump’s new indictment, as some news outlets had suggested.
Rather, because the supply chain is threatening to break down under the Biden administration’s leadership, and it’s never a bad idea to be prepared.
However, after a recent poll Beck took of his audience, he’s concerned that many of them are underprepared.
“I have the results of this audience, and I think it’s going to shock you,” Beck says.
The poll collected answers from 10,000 audience members and asked: “How prepared are you?”
Within the poll, questions range from "How long will your food supply last you and your family?" to "Do you have a flashlight with extra batteries?"
While all the questions are important, Beck says, “How strong is your emergency fund?” is “really important.”
“If the banks go down — which, do not panic, all you have to do is prepare. If you have enough money for a few days of what it would cost to, you know, get gas and food or whatever, you should have that in cash. Be great to have, you know, your monthly bills in cash, for a month,” Beck says.
Another important one: How good are you with paper maps?
Glenn and Stu agree that while they’re both good at reading paper maps, many people have traded in their ability to read paper maps for the convenience of GPS.
According to the results of the poll, 1.7% of Glenn’s listeners are “toast.”
“You won’t survive if your kitchen table breaks,” Glenn jokes.
According to the results of the poll, 13% of Glenn’s listeners could survive a mild disaster, while 69.8% have some investment in precious metal, emergency funds, some food and supplies stockpiled.
“Then there’s this Mad Max category of 15%,” Glenn adds.
“You’re one of the few people who could actually survive a nuclear apocalypse.”
