(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Extremely liberal filmmaker Michael Moore no doubt wants to see Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden smash President Donald Trump in the 2020 election next week, but he’s also well aware of the fact that just because the polls have Biden in the lead, that doesn’t mean those polls are actually right.
In fact, lots and lots of people were sure that the polls were right in 2016 and that Hillary Clinton would easily defeat Trump to take the Oval Office, but that isn’t what happened at all. You see, there’s a large segment of the population who are called the “silent majority.” They don’t participate in surveys for polls, but they show up on election day and let their voice be heard by casting a ballot for their candidate of choice.
According to BizPacReview, Moore said he thinks most of the polls in swing states, which show Biden with a comfortable lead, are likely wrong, saying the races are probably a lot tighter than folks think.
The filmmaker appeared on The Hill’s “Rising” show, where he said it was “awful news” that President Trump, according to polls, has cut Biden’s sizable lead nearly in half in recent weeks, taking the lead down seven points all the way from being down 16 points himself on one survey.
“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,” he added.
“It’s all fake news to them, remember. It’s not an accurate count,” Moore went on. “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.”
Moore is definitely spot on about not trusting the polls. There’s a lot more going on here than meets the eye. Polls have proven to be inaccurate a lot of the time, leaving out important bits of data and information that simply gets overlooked or not taken into consideration when giving the polls context.
But this line of thinking can totally go the other way too. The polls might actually be spot on and those who believe they are wrong could have it all backwards. We’ll find out in just a few short days which group of folks has it right.
