Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore surprised many with his prediction of a 2016 Donald Trump victory, which happened over a year ago.
And now, he’s making the same prediction once again — President Donald Trump will be reelected in 2020.
More specifically, the filmmaker said he would lose the popular vote, but once again succeed in getting the electoral votes necessary to come out on top.
“I should say reappointed, because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020,” Moore said in an interview with Fast Company magazine published Monday. “But he will win those electoral states as it stands now.”
The Hill reports:
Trump lost the popular votes by more than 3 millions voters, but won in the Electoral College by a comfortable 306-232 margin. The real estate mogul won in states seen as Clinton’s blue wall, ones that have gone Democratic in several recent elections, including Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
Moore, who was one of few prominent voices who predicted Trump would win in 2016, urged Democrats to accept an agreement adopted by 10 states and Washington, D.C., that awards each of their electoral votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the overall popular vote, called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
The agreement as it stands, however, only represents 165 electoral votes of the 270 needed for victory. But Moore thinks it’s the best way to get a Democratic nominee elected.
“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. Think of that uphill battle.”
