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.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November
They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.
New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.
Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.
While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.
Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.
With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.
The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
