According to an article from Fast Company, Micheal Moore is predicting a Trump victory in 2020.
Three weeks into the run of his anti-Trump Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender, filmmaker and activist Michael Moore tells Fast Company that the president will be reelected in 2020. “I should say re-appointed, because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020,” Moore says. “But he will win those electoral states as it stands now.”
As dire as Moore’s prediction is–and let’s not forget that he was one of the few people who foresaw a Trump victory–he has a plan to change how it stands. His show is an attempt to generate the momentum and activism he thinks we need to shift the facts before the next election. “Here’s the good news: We don’t have to convince a single Trump voter to vote differently because we already have the majority,” Moore says, pointing out that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million.
But she lost the electoral college by 77,000 votes in total in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, and despite a movement afoot now to abolish the electoral college, it’s unlikely that is going to happen anytime soon, Moore says.
That said, he believes the National Popular Vote interstate compact, an agreement between states to award all of their electoral votes to the candidate who wins the popular vote, could succeed as a workaround if we can convince enough state legislatures to pass it in time. So far, it has won approval in 10 states and Washington, D.C.–the agreement will only be enacted once states delivering a total of 270 electoral votes have signed on, and it’s still far from that goal.
“That’ll be an easier way to get this done,” Moore says. “People should not despair, thinking, well, the Republicans have all this power and all that. Think of the suffragettes. They were trying to get the vote for women. They got [the 19th Amendment ratified] in 35 states to give women the right to vote. Think of that uphill battle.”
So what should we take away from this article?
1. Democrat’s realize they can’t win elections without changing the process
The Democrats love to parade around the idea that Hillary won the popular vote. What they don’t like to parade around is the fact that the popular vote doesn’t determine who wins. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote because she won big cities. Without California, Hillary Clinton would have lost the popular vote and would’ve been demolished in the electoral college as well. That is the beauty of the American electoral process it gives every state a chance for its voice to be heard. The Democrats message doesn’t appeal have the vast appeal that Trump’s did. That’s why the Democrats are trying everything they can to rewrite the way we elect a President. The idea that our President should be elected through the popular vote is moronic but the Dems realize they won’t win many more Presidental elections without an electoral change.
2. The Democrats are going to crash and burn with identity politics:
Rather than learning from why they lost the last election, the Democrats will double down on nonsense. Here is Moore’s most moronic point.
“Moore is heartened by the changing demographics of the United States. “Nearly 70% of the country is either female, people of color, or young adults between 18 and 35, or a combination of the three. The angry white guy is dying out, and the Census Bureau has already told us that by 2050, white people are going to be the minority, and I’m not sad to say I can’t wait for that day to happen. I hope I live long enough to see it because it will be a better country.”
Moore admits that he pretty much thinks that our country would be better off without white people. He claims that white people being the minority automatically makes America a better place. The bottom line is that bad people come in every color. Making one group the minority will do nothing to curtail the number of bad people in America.
This quote showcases that Democrats are continuing their identity politics mission. Instead of looking at everyone as American citizens they break us all off into different groups.
3. Trump will win in 2020
Micheal Moore knows that Trump is going to win in 2020 because he realizes his message is being refused by the American people. The fake polls won’t tell you it, the mainstream media won’t tell you it but networks that are interested in covering the truth will tell you that Trump is as popular as ever. You can see this through the fact that the RNC is fundraising at such a high rate right now and the fact that Pro-Trump candidates are beating their Republican establishment opponents in popularity among Republican voters.
