Gadfly Michael Moore Had It Right in July When He Posted ‘5 Reasons Trump Will Win’

Nov 9, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Filmmaker and political gadfly Michael Moore was one of the most prominent prognosticators forecasting a win by Donald Trump in the presidential election, including posting an essay back in July under the headline “5 Reasons Trump Will Win.” You can read Moore’s full essay on his website by clicking here.

Moore correctly predicted that Trump would make inroads into the Rust Belt by focusing on the traditionally Democratic states of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Moore also cited the anger of a group he called the “Endangered White Male,” along with “The Hillary Problem” and “The Depressed Sanders Vote.” Finally, he noted a certain mischievous tendency in an electorate determined to “shake things up,” which Moore called “The Jesse Ventura Effect.”

For the most part, Moore appears to have been right on target.

  1. Endangered with male is probably one of the most bigoted terms I have heard in quite some time. Condescending, racist, and sexist… but then what do you expect from the source?
