In 2016, Michael Moore was one of the few Democrats who actually believed Trump would win.
He issued a stark warning that the establishment was seriously underestimating Donald Trump.
Now, on August 29, 2020, Michael Moore issued a "warning" to the Democrats: President Trump is on course to repeat 2016.
The way things stand, Trump is on course for a MASSIVE victory this November.
The media pundits are underestimating him yet again.
Moore also warned that Trump supporters' enthusiasm is "off the charts."
More details on Moore's prediction below:
For reference, this is what Michael Moore predicted in 2016:
The poll numbers suggest that Michael Moore is correct.
Prior to the conventions, President Trump was behind in swing states.
However, after both the DNC and RNC, President Trump is SURGING.
Joe Biden feels the heat.
His campaign announced that after Labor Day, Sleepy Joe will be finally campaigning in person.
They wouldn't be doing this unless Michael Moore's prediction is correct: President Trump is on track to repeat his historic 2016 upset!
Look at the latest poll numbers:
Enthusiasm for President Trump is "OFF THE CHARTS."
This is the assessment of Michael Moore.
According to The Hill:
Filmmaker Michael Moore warned Democrats that President Trump appears to have momentum behind his reelection campaign in key battleground states, with the progressive activist saying enthusiasm for Trump is "OFF THE CHARTS" compared with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Moore pointed to polling in battleground states such as Minnesota and Michigan in making the case that Trump was running alongside or ahead of Biden in key areas, setting himself up for another potential upset in November.
"Are you ready for a Trump victory? Are you mentally prepared to be outsmarted by Trump again? Do you find comfort in your certainty that there is no way Trump can win? Are you content with the trust you’ve placed in the DNC [Democratic National Committee] to pull this off?" Moore wrote in a Facebook post on Friday.
"I’m warning you almost 10 weeks in advance. The enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS! For Joe, not so much," he added. "Don’t leave it to the Democrats to get rid of Trump. YOU have to get rid of Trump. WE have to wake up every day for the next 67 days and make sure each of us are going to get a hundred people out to vote. ACT NOW!"
Moore, saying he wanted "to provide the reality check again," cited CNN polling of registered voters this month to assert that "Biden and Trump were in a virtual tie." He referenced polling showing the pair tied at 47 percent in Minnesota and said that Trump "has closed the gap to 4 points" in Michigan.
It was not immediately clear what polling Moore was referring to. CNN released a national poll earlier this month that did find Biden's lead over Trump had narrowed compared with the previous month, with Biden leading Trump by 4 points, 50 percent to 46 percent. But that did not focus exclusively on battleground states.
A separate survey from Trafalgar Group, a Georgia-based polling firm, did find Biden and Trump statistically tied at 47 percent in Minnesota. That firm's survey of Michigan showed Trump narrowly leading Biden in the Wolverine State.
Just like in 2016, most media pundits don't believe that Trump will win in 2020.
But, those who know how to read the proverbial tea leaves know that there are plenty of signs that Trump still has tremendous strength.
And that strength is growing.
Even Michael Moore can feel it!
Of course, the media is missing the point because they are coastal elites.
They don't know what every day men and every day women are feeling.
This is why Trump's victory will come as a surprise to them again.
But not to Michael Moore.
The Guardian confirms Moore's prediction over 2 months before the election:
The documentary film-maker Michael Moore has warned that Donald Trump appears to have such momentum in some battleground states that liberals risk a repeat of 2016 when so many wrote off Trump only to see him grab the White House.
“Sorry to have to provide the reality check again,” he said.
Moore, who was one of few political observers to predict Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016, said that “enthusiasm for Trump is off the charts” in key areas compared with the Democratic party nominee, Joe Biden.
“Are you ready for a Trump victory? Are you mentally prepared to be outsmarted by Trump again? Do you find comfort in your certainty that there is no way Trump can win? Are you content with the trust you’ve placed in the DNC [Democratic National Committee] to pull this off?” Moore posted on Facebook late on Friday.
Moore identified opinion polling in battleground states such as Minnesota and Michigan to make a case that the sitting president is running alongside or ahead of his rival.
“The Biden campaign just announced he’ll be visiting a number of states – but not Michigan. Sound familiar?” Moore wrote, presumably indicating Hillary Clinton’s 2016 race when she made the error of avoiding some states that then swung to Trump.
“I’m warning you almost 10 weeks in advance. The enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS! For Joe, not so much,” he later added.
He continued to voters: “Don’t leave it to the Democrats to get rid of Trump. YOU have to get rid of Trump. WE have to wake up every day for the next 67 days and make sure each of us are going to get a hundred people out to vote. ACT NOW!”
Moore cited CNN polling of registered voters this month to assert that “Biden and Trump were in a virtual tie”, including a poll that showed the pair tied at 47% in Minnesota. Moore said that Trump “has closed the gap to 4 points” in Michigan.
A national CNN poll this month showed that Biden’s lead over Trump has narrowed nationally, 50% to 46%, while a survey from the Republican-leaning Trafalgar Group found Biden and Trump statistically tied at 47% in Minnesota, and Trump narrowly leading Biden in Michigan. The margin of error for the poll, which surveyed 1,048 people, is 2.98%.
Moore, a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders’s leftwing candidacy, warned in October 2016 that “Trump’s election is going to be the biggest ‘f*** you’ ever recorded in human history – and it will feel good,” even as Clinton appeared to be sailing to victory.
Moore might have crazy politics.
But it appears that he's more in touch with the American people than the coastal elites.
Hopefully... the media and Biden campaign continue to ignore the warning signs that they will lose!
This November will be epic!
