Moore also thinks that Trump could lose the popular vote by “four to five” million votes
Back in October of 2016, Michael Moore predicted that President Trump would win that year’s presidential election and that it would be the biggest “F—ck You” in human history.
This year, he is predicting another Trump win, this time because “his level of support has not gone down one inch.”
Moore also says that the Democrats can win this time only by nominating someone like socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Moore endorsed Sanders earlier this year.

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore argued that President Trump could be on his way to another electoral victory, claiming his support hasn’t dropped “one inch” in the Midwestern battlegrounds that are key to the 2020 presidential contest.
At the same time, Moore used that warning to make his case for a candidate like Bernie Sanders — whom he’s endorsed — urging Democrats not to nominate another “Republican-lite” candidate like former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
While suggesting his party still has a fighting chance, Moore said that if the 2020 elections were held today, Trump would lose the popular vote by a bigger margin than he did in 2016 but still win the electoral vote.
“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 told Democracy Now in an interview posted on Thursday.
“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, and 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. 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.”
President Trump responded to the report noting that Moore had made the same prediction in 2016.
Moore, quite hilariously (and predictably), pretended that winning the popular vote is somehow more important than winning the Electoral College. The latter, of course, is how one wins the presidency.
Finally a truthful tweet from Trump! Tweeting at me tonight regarding my comments that he’ll lose the popular vote again (by an even larger margin than 2016), but may win the electoral college in 2020 if Dems don’t nominate the progressive candidate and get the base out to vote. pic.twitter.com/ERNGGhsEea

Sadly for Moore and his stompy-foot lefty brethren, the Electoral College is all that matters.
And that, for Trump in 2016, was a blowout.DONATE
