In an interview on Thursday with “Democracy Now!,” left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said if the presidential election were held today that President Donald Trump would win a 2nd term.
Moore stated, “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. There’s no concern in my mind that people who stayed house, who rested on the bench, they’re going to put out, in California, New York City and– you understand, but also in Texas and whatever, I indicate, positions that Trump will most likely win, however, yeah, there’s going to be a much greater percentage of individuals voting versus him.”
He continued, “The problem is, is that he will– if the vote were today, I believe, he would win the electoral states that he would require, because, living out there, I will tell you, his level of support has not decreased one inch. In reality, I ‘d state it’s a lot more wild than it was previously due to the fact that they’re afraid now. They hesitate he could lose because they saw his behavior. So they are starved in their cravings for Donald Trump. That’s the bad news. The great news is, again, top, always remember, there’s more of us than there are of them. The bulk of the American individuals agree with us. Seventy percent of the citizens next year are women, individuals of color, and young people. OK? All that on our side. So, what we have to do is we need to make certain we do not offer them another Hillary Clinton to vote for. The Democrats who are motivating small amounts, go to the center– you know, “Let’s not disturb the mad white people”– that’s really what it is. You understand, the citizen they’re attempting to encourage– “That’s why we have actually got to have Biden. You know, we have actually got to have Klobuchar. We have actually got to have someone that is someplace there, wherever that middle is now.” There’s actually nobody because middle, by the way. Even the Fox News poll recently revealed that 54%supported impeachment and conviction, and 40- some percent didn’t. And then they asked the question: How many of you would support impeachment but no removal? It was at 4%, 5%. I indicate, it resembled– there’s nobody in that trying to have it both ways. So, it is polarized, however for a good reason. Polarization is always spoken about like it’s a bad thing. I think it’s a good idea. I believe if you believe females should deserve to vote, I do not think there’s a middle position on that. You either believe that ladies need to vote or females should not vote. You either think that a fertilized egg is a person or not. There’s no happy medium there.”
He added, “Therefore, our side has actually got to take this by the reins, and it’s got to have the nerve of our convictions to combat this. And if we do this, then he won’t win the electoral states. Remember, Hillary just lost Michigan by 2 votes per precinct. That’s it. And it’s not since Lunch Pail Joe stayed home, you understand, or elected Trump. It’s because– when they discuss the working class, Amy, this just drives me crazy. “Oh, you understand, Trump won all these working-class votes in Michigan and Pennsylvania.” No. What occurred was, is that the Democratic Celebration didn’t stand in the manner in which they must have for what the youth wanted, for what people of color required.”
