I know what you’re thinking – you read THIS a month ago, which said that Trump was doomed, and now we’re telling you he is going to win.
Well we’re not, because that would require us to give up on America, but someone who is throwing in the towel is Michael Moore, the director behind the doccies Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11.
In his latest piece for the Huffington Post Moore (pictured below) says he is certain the Donald will win, and he has outlined five points why.
Let’s just dive into those five with a brief descriptor of each where it’s not too obvious:
1. Midwest Math, or Welcome to Our Rust Belt Brexit.
From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England – broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we use to call the Middle Class…
All Trump needs to do to win is to carry, as he’s expected to do, the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states.
2. The Last Stand of the Angry White Man.
3. The Hillary Problem.
Let’s face it: Our biggest problem here isn’t Trump – it’s Hillary. She is hugely unpopular — nearly 70% of all voters think she is untrustworthy and dishonest. She represents the old way of politics, not really believing in anything other than what can get you elected.
4. The Depressed Sanders Vote
The fire alarm that should be going off is that while the average Bernie backer will drag him/herself to the polls that day to somewhat reluctantly vote for Hillary, it will be what’s called a “depressed vote” – meaning the voter doesn’t bring five people to vote with her. He doesn’t volunteer 10 hours in the month leading up to the election. She never talks in an excited voice when asked why she’s voting for Hillary. A depressed voter.
5. The Jesse Ventura Effect.
And in the same way like when you’re standing on the edge of Niagara Falls and your mind wonders for a moment what would that feel like to go over that thing, a lot of people are going to love being in the position of puppetmaster and plunking down for Trump just to see what that might look like.
Moore outlines each in great detail, which you can read in full HERE, and it doesn’t sound like alarmist ranting either.
I guess all we can do is hope, hope Michael Moore is wrong and hope America doesn’t push that big orange self-destruct button.
