Heading into Election Night 2016, almost every Democrat – and many Republicans – thought Hillary Clinton was a shoo-in for a landslide victory over Donald Trump.
They all were wrong.
And this Democrat that predicted Hillary Clinton’s defeat just sounded one big alarm.
In 2016, left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore warned Democrats in a viral video that working-class voters in Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin were ready to walk through fire to vote for Trump and that Trump would carry those states.
Moore was right.
All the “experts” and the polls were wrong.
Four years later, Michael Moore is once again warning Democrats that Donald Trump’s base in the Midwest swing states is stronger than ever.
Moore tweeted out a poll from the Trafalgar Group – the only pollster to call Trump’s wins in Michigan and Wisconsin – that showed Trump leading Biden by two in Michigan as a major red flag for Biden’s chances.
“Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden? Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI 47-45. Yet so many Dems convinced Trump’ll lose. DANGER!” Moore wrote.
Moore tweeted out other polling data that showed Trump running better against Biden in the swing states than he did against Hillary Clinton at this same point on the calendar back in 2016.
“Check this out—during the same week in August, but 4yrs apart: In 2016, Hillary was way ahead of Trump. But this past week, in some swing states, Biden’s lead is less than what Hillary’s was. You can’t blame this one on the PO or Russia. This is on the candidate & party. WAKE UP!” Moore wrote.
Moore also posted on his Facebook a massive wakeup call about the state of Michigan.
Biden announced a slew of states he would visit after Labor Day, but Michigan was not on them.
Moore noted Hillary Clinton employed the prevent defense strategy to disastrous effect in 2016 and that the enthusiasm for Trump was off the charts in Michigan.
“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 to pull this off? The Biden campaign just announced he’ll be visiting a number of states— but not Michigan. Sound familiar? 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,” Moore wrote.
Democrats can ignore Michael Moore’s warnings at their own peril.
And while Moore’s political ideology is socialist and anti-America, his political instincts about how the voters in the Midwest view Donald Trump has been spot-on.
