According to Michael Moore, a liberal activist, and filmmaker, President Donald Trump is on the way to reelection in 2020, despite historically low approval levels. The filmmaker made his statement while giving an interview to Fast Company
Moore is currently pushing for Democrats to start a movement that would allow Electoral College votes to the national popular vote winner, which would decrease the possibility of Donald Trump getting reelected. The proposals is called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact
Moore, on Monday, was quoted saying, “I should say reappointed because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020. But he will win those electoral states as it stands now.”
Despite Trump losing the popular vote by over 3 million voters, he won the Electoral College by a comfortable margin of 306-232. Multiple states, in recent elections, however, have gone Democratic. Some of those states include Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
Moore went on to urge Democrats to accept an agreement adopted by ten states and Washington, D.C., that awards each of their electoral votes to whichever candidate wins the popular vote. It will be called the “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.”
Moore went on to make it clear that he believes this is the best way to get a Democrat elected into office.
He concluded, “That’ll be an easier way to get this done. 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.”
What are your thoughts on Moore’s proposition? Do you think this plan will catapult a Democrat into The White House?
