Left-wing documentarian Michael Moore now believes that President Trump will win re-election, based upon his strength in his home state of Michigan and other states in the rust belt throughout the Midwest.
Moore confessed his fears during a recent appearance on Democracy Now! with host Amy Goodman. He believes that if the re-election were to take place today, Trump would certainly be the winner.
“I think if the election were held today,” Moore said. “Hillary won by 3 million popular votes. I believe whoever the Democrat is next year is going to win by 4 to 5 million popular votes. There’s no question in my mind that people who stayed home, who sat on the bench, they’re going to pour out, in California, New York and — you know, but also in Texas and whatever, I mean, places that Trump will probably win, but, yeah, there’s going to be a much higher percentage of people voting against him.”
“The problem is, if the vote were today, I believe, he would win the electoral states that he would need, because, living out there, I will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch,” he added. “In fact, I’d say it’s even more rabid than it was before, because they’re afraid now. They’re afraid he could lose, because they watched his behavior. So they are voracious in their appetite for Donald Trump. That’s the bad news.”
Although he believes President Trump will win, he isn’t giving up all hope quite yet. Moore predicts that 70 percent of the voting public will be women, minorities, and young people who he believes are “on our side.” He thinks that these people could be galvanized if Democrats elect a “fighter” instead of “another Hillary Clinton.”
“What we have to do is we have to make sure we don’t give them another Hillary Clinton to vote for. The Democrats who are encouraging moderation, go to the center — you know, ‘Let’s not upset the angry white guys’ — that’s really what it is,” Moore said. “Ninety thousand wanted to send a message to the Democratic Party: ‘You forgot us a long time ago out here, and we will not put up with this anymore. We’re not going to vote for Trump, but we’re not going to tolerate you sending us another Republican-lite Democrat.'”
“If we go that route, it’s guaranteed we will lose the Electoral College,” Moore continued. “We will win when we put somebody on that ballot that excites the base — women, people of color, young people. When they wake up that morning and they feel the way that many of us, many of you watching, felt the morning that you were going to — in 2008, and you were going to get to go and vote for Barack Obama. That feeling has got to happen in the 18-to-35-year-old demographic. It has to happen with people of color and with women. We already feel that way. They already feel that way. It’s just: Will they come out and vote for a centrist, moderate candidate. I don’t think that is going to happen. They’re going to come out and vote for the fighter, for the person that shares their values.”
Moore believes that nominating a bona fide extremist would be the best way for Democrats to capitalize on the growing polarization in the country and defeat Trump in 2020.
“Polarization is always talked about like it’s a bad thing,” Moore said. “I think it’s a good thing. I think if you think women should have the right to vote, I don’t think there’s a middle position on that. You either believe that women should vote or women shouldn’t vote. You either believe that a fertilized egg is a human being or not. There’s no middle ground there.”
However, recent results in the British election – which saw a populist Conservative Party crush a far-left Labour Party – do not seem to back up Moore’s recipe for electoral victory:
The Conservative Party has crushed Labour in Thursday’s general election, which is expected to result in a substantial majority in Parliament.
According to exit polls conducted by the BBC, the Tories will end up with 368 Members of Parliament (MPs), which is 50 more than they had following the 2017 election. Labour is expected to have 191 MPs while the SNP is expected to take 55 and Lib Dems are expected to have 13. The official totals are expected to be known by midday on Friday.
BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg predicts that this victory will be enough to allow Prime Minister Boris Johnson to remove the UK from the European Union, finally going through with the Brexit that was approved in 2016.
Labour’s projected loss of 71 seats would be their worst result since 1935, a damning indictment of radical leftist party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has drawn a great deal of criticism for his alleged anti-Semitism. He was forced to begrudgingly apologize for the growing anti-Semitism within his party just last week.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
