Democratic filmmaker Michael Moore seems alarmed at the continued advance of President Donald Trump over Democratic candidate Joe Biden, according to polls and urges his co-partisans to respond.
“Sorry to have to provide the reality check again, but when CNN polled registered voters in August in just the swing states, Biden and Trump were in a virtual tie,” Moore wrote in his Instagram account on Aug. 28.
“In Minnesota, it’s 47-47,” he added. “In Michigan, where Biden had a big lead, Trump has closed the gap to 4 points. 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?” added Moore, addressing the Democrats.
Moore also noted in the same message the enthusiasm that characterizes President Trump’s supporters and noted that the Democrats lack that energy.
“The enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS! For Joe, not so much,” said Moore.
Moore has made predictions about Trump’s campaign that have proven accurate and has warned Democrats on occasion, which does not go unnoticed by Trump as he noted in a tweet from him in December 2019.
“He made the same prediction in 2016. Nobody ever said Michael was stupid!,” Trump responded to a tweet in which Moore predicted, “The fat man sings, the liberal Michael Moore predicts a Trump victory in 2020. Duh!

In fact, Trump leads Biden in Michigan where their percentages were shown to be 46 percent and 45 percent respectively, according to a Trafalgar Group survey, cited by the Daily Caller on Aug 28.
Additionally, a representative for the PredictIt market forecasting website, Will Jennings, pointed out Trump’s rise over Biden in the Wisconsin polls.
“For example, alongside the conventions and after the tragic events in Kenosha, WI, the odds that Democrats will win Wisconsin have dropped 9 percent in the last week, from 66 percent down to 57 percent” Jennings compared, according to the Washington Examiner.
This data is an indication that confirmed Moore’s alarm over Trump’s victory in the Nov. 3 election.
There is also a current of Democrats who are disassociating themselves from their party in order to support Trump’s campaign, as can be seen from the conversations they are having with C-SPAN, attached to a tweet from @bennyjohnson.
Benny Johnson is the creative director of Turning Point USA, a conservative American nonprofit organization.
“The amount of Democrats calling into CSPAN during the @GOPconvention saying that they’re switching parties is insane,” Johnson wrote.
