Socialist documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is in full panic mode this week. Moore, who famously warned his liberal fans that Hillary Clinton was poised to lose the 2016 election, is sounding a familiar tune in recent days, insisting that the polls show Joe Biden in an increasingly precarious position. On Friday, he took to his Facebook account to warn readers that overconfidence in Biden’s chances could easily sink the Democratic ship. And on Twitter this weekend, Moore doubled down, warning that Trump’s chances for reelection were growing stronger by the day.
“Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden?” he tweeted. “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 followed that up with a collection of Real Clear Politics averages that showed Hillary Clinton with a seemingly-insurmountable lead on Trump in the swing states:
“Check this out—during the same week in August, but 4yrs apart,” Moore said. “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!”
As we said, this followed a stark warning from Moore on Facebook last week when he pointed to additional polls showing Biden’s lead over Trump dwindling to within the margin of error.
“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. In Minnesota, it’s 47-47. In Michigan, where Biden had a big lead, Trump has closed the gap to 4 points,” he wrote. “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,” Moore continued. “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. Don’t leave it to the Democrats to get rid of Trump. YOU have to get rid of Trump. WE have to wake up every day for the next 67 days and make sure each of us are going to get a hundred people out to vote. ACT NOW!”
Sorry, Mike. All your fans are too busy being keyboard warriors on Twitter and when they’re not doing that, they’re throwing bottles at police in Portland. They’re not going to vote and they’re not going to recruit anyone else to do it, either.
Well, unless you count the way their actions are driving Trump supporters out to the polls in greater numbers…
