Michael Moore says Trump is on track to win again in 2020

The liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore thinks President Trump is on track to win re-election in 2020, doing it the same way as before – winning the Electoral College, but not the popular vote. 

‘I should say re-appointed, because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020,’ Moore told Fast Company during a recent sit-down. ‘But he will win those electoral states as it stands now.’ 

Moore was one of the only famous political figures who had predicted a Trump 2016 win, aided, in part, by his familiarity with Michigan, a state the president moved from blue to red, having grown up in Flint. 

In a recent interview with Fast Company, Michael Moore said he thought President Trump was on track to win re-election in 2020 

Heralding from Flint, Michigan, Michael Moore was one of the few political figures who believed President Trump would win the White House in 2016

Now the documentary filmmaker – known for Fahrenheit 9/11, Bowling for Columbine and Sicko – is trying something new, performing a show on Broadway as a way to get more Americans politically involved. 

Right after a recent performance of Terms of My Surrender, his one-man show that runs through October 22, he loaded the attendees onto buses and rolled them to Trump Tower to engage in an anti-Trump protest after the Charlottesville violence. 

‘A number of them had never been to a protest before, and it was exciting for them,’ Moore said. 

‘They felt like Americans, like they were participating, and that always feels good,’ Moore added. 

Moore had some other feel-good quotes for making such a dire prediction for liberals.  

‘Here’s the good news,’ he said. ‘We don’t have to convince a single Trump voter to vote differently because we already have the majority,’ Moore said, pointing to how Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. 

Moore also pointed out that 8 million Obama voters had switched political sides and voted for Trump. 

‘We just need to convince a few of them – hold out our hand and bring them back. Can we do that? I think we can do that,’ Moore said. ‘You know, there were seven-and-a-half million that voted Green or Libertarian.’ 

‘I think we can convince a few of them to come back,’ Moore continued. ‘We don’t need to convince a whole lot here.’ 

Moore also said he was behind the National Popular Vote movement as a way to more easily get rid of the Electoral College. 

It’s an interstate compact that pledges a state’s votes will go toward the winner of the popular vote, preventing another Trump or George W. Bush-type election. 

‘That’ll be an easier way to get this done,’ Moore said. ‘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,’ Moore pointed out. ‘Think of that uphill battle.’
