Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore finally broke down and admitted that President Donald Trump would probably win the 2020 election if it was held today.
Moore says Trump would win enough electoral states to earn the presidency today, noting that support for Trump in the Midwest has not gone down by “one inch.”
Moore breaks down
Moore’s comments came during an interview he gave with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!
“The problem is, if the vote were today, I believe, he would win the electoral states that he would need, because, living out there [in the Midwest], I will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch,” Moore said. “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.”
Nonetheless, Moore believes that Trump will, once again, lose the popular vote and this time by an even larger margin.
“I think if the election were held today, 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,” Moore said. “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 “right” candidate
For Moore, one of the reasons that Democrats are struggling is because of the type of candidates they have put up in the past — like Hillary Clinton. And so, to Moore, it is vital that the right individual is chosen.
“We will win when we put somebody on that ballot that excites the base — women, people of color, young people,” Moore said. “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.”
By the way that Moore is talking, it seems that he doesn’t think that any members of the current 2020 lineup fit the bill.
“That feeling has got to happen in the 18-to-35-year-old demographic,” Moore said. “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.” Watch:
What Moore seems to forget in all of this is that it was eight years of the Obama administration that led to the presidency of Donald Trump.
As long as Moore and others continue to go far to the left, Moore will be right in his prediction that Trump and future Trumps will continue to win elections.
