Michael Moore is probably significantly smarter than Nancy Pelosi.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi projected Thursday that Joe Biden would win the White House and said Democrats are ready to work with him on a transition agenda to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, address the economic fallout and pass an infrastructure plan.
“I feel very confident that Joe Biden will be elected president on Tuesday,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said at a news conference at the Capitol, while acknowledging counting votes may continue past Nov. 3.
“On Jan. 20, he will be inaugurated president of the United States. So while we don’t want to be overconfident or assume anything, we have to be ready for how we’re going to go down a different path.”
She said Democrats have a science-based approach to crush the virus.
“We are confident. We are calm. And we are prepared. We are ready,” Pelosi said of the election.
Pelosi praised the wave of early voting underway as a “joy to behold.” But she also warned Americans to no longer send their absentee ballots in the mail because it’s too late to get them counted, suggesting voters should either vote in person or drop off their ballots at designated locations.
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is sounding the alarm five days before Election Day, strongly suggesting that polls showing Joe Biden in a comfortable lead against President Trump are not accurate.
During his appearance on The Hill TV’s “Rising,” Moore began by calling it “awful news” that Biden was ahead of Trump by seven points in his home state of Michigan and explained how Trump managed to cut Biden’s lead “in half,” citing another poll that had the Democratic nominee “16 points” ahead of the president.
“Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where- what are they saying this morning?… ‘Biden’s five points ahead in Wisconsin… maybe three points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona’… Listen, don’t believe these polls,'” Moore said. “The Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters- when they actually call the Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the ‘Deep State’ calling them and asking them who they’re voting for.”
Polls are “fake news” to Trump supporter, he said.
“So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do, this is not scientific… whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head. Cut it in half, and now you’re within the four-point margin of error. That’s how close this is! That’s how desperately close this is!”
It’s not clear why, if Moore believes what he says he believes, he would want Biden to win.
Biden epitomizes everything about the corruption that Moore rails against. Even if you disagree with Trump’s policies, no one can claim he’s corrupt. (Except Barack Obama, who vaguely claims that Trump is “helping his friends” with his presidency, without ever stating who those friends are or how he’s helping them.)
It’s obvious Trump is going to win the election.
You’d think that for Nancy, on a personal level, this would be a positive thing. It makes her a lot more important than she would otherwise be.
But who knows what’s going through that batty old bat’s head.
