Michael Moore Explains Why Donald Trump Will Win In November – And It Actually Makes Perfect Sense

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Michael Moore is a radical leftist that is trying to destroy everything that America once stood for, but for once he is making sense. In his recent article entitled “5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win“, he makes a compelling case for why Donald Trump could win the election in November. I can’t remember the last time I actually agreed with Michael Moore about something, but in this instance I do. The American people are very angry and very frustrated, and they want someone that is going to shake things up in Washington. Needless to say, that is not going to be Hillary Clinton. According to Real Clear Politics, Trump has won five of the last six major national polls, and top Democrats are starting to understand that they could actually lose to the New York billionaire.

As Michael Moore has pointed out, the key to the election may be the upper Midwest. That is why it may turn out to be very wise that Trump has picked a running mate from the region. Residents of the upper Midwest have watched NAFTA and other “free trade deals” turn their formerly booming economy into an area now known as “the rust belt”. Now that there is a major presidential candidate that is openly speaking out against these “free trade deals”, they will finally have a real opportunity to let their voices be heard. The following is from the Michael Moore article that I mentioned above…

I believe Trump is going to focus much of his attention on the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes – Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Four traditionally Democratic states – but each of them have elected a Republican governor since 2010 (only Pennsylvania has now finally elected a Democrat). In the Michigan primary in March, more Michiganders came out to vote for the Republicans (1.32 million) that the Democrats (1.19 million). Trump is ahead of Hillary in the latest polls in Pennsylvania and tied with her in Ohio. Tied? How can the race be this close after everything Trump has said and done? Well maybe it’s because he’s said (correctly) that the Clintons’ support of NAFTA helped to destroy the industrial states of the Upper Midwest.

Since NAFTA went into effect on January 1, 1994, the United States has lost tens of thousands of manufacturing facilities and millions of good paying jobs. Once upon a time, the city of Detroit had the highest per capita income in the entire country, but now it is a rotting, decaying, crime-infested disaster zone that the rest of the world makes jokes about.

It was under Bill Clinton that NAFTA was implemented, and Bill and Hillary have long been supportive of NAFTA and other “free trade deals” that have been responsible for systematically dismantling America’s economic infrastructure. Trump has already made this a major theme of his campaign, and the voters in the rust belt states could potentially make the difference in who wins in November. Here is some additional analysis from Michael Moore…

And this is where the math comes in. In 2012, Mitt Romney lost by 64 electoral votes. Add up the electoral votes cast by Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It’s 64. All Trump needs to do to win is to carry, as he’s expected to do, the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states. He doesn’t need Florida. He doesn’t need Colorado or Virginia. Just Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. And that will put him over the top. This is how it will happen in November.

But there is another factor that Michael Moore has pointed out that I think we should consider as well. While most American voters take their votes very seriously, there is a small minority that will let some of the most frivolous reasons imaginable decide their votes.

Some Americans just want a good story. Others want to stick it to the establishment. Yet others just “want to see what will happen” if a certain person gets into the White House. And it seems quite likely that Donald Trump will win the “curiosity vote”, the “anger vote”, and “the twisted sense of humor vote”. Everyone pretty much knows what we will get with Hillary Clinton in the White House (and it would be horrible), but there is a great mystery as far as what Donald Trump would do as president. I happen to agree with Michael Moore that this is a factor that greatly favors Trump

You can take as long as you need in there and no one can make you do anything. You can push the button and vote a straight party line, or you can write in Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. There are no rules. And because of that, and the anger that so many have toward a broken political system, millions are going to vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can. Just because it will upset the apple cart and make mommy and daddy mad. And in the same way like when you’re standing on the edge of Niagara Falls and your mind wonders for a moment what would that feel like to go over that thing, a lot of people are going to love being in the position of puppetmaster and plunking down for Trump just to see what that might look like.

    Well… Yes?

    You Sure Type A Lot Of Crap Along The Way However.

    Do You Get Paid 1c Per Word?

      @C.I.
      Since Michael Snyder went to law school to become a lawyer, the answer about getting paid for each word, is YES YES YES.

      I don’t know which law class they teach about it, but “BILLING” formulas are a big part of how lawyers make their money. They charge by the minute, and by each page of paperwork, each phone call and every minute of “research” into your case.

      They charge for each “Motion & filing”, appeal, court appearance, etc. (Gotta pay for that new BMW/Mercedes, and gotta pay for that 4,000 sq-ft home, boat, fancy stuff for the wife, private schools for the kids, etc.

      Another thing lawyers do, is they ADVERTISE themselves out there as much as possible, to keep their business out there in the public view to gather more followers and clients.

      They continuously announce all kinds of Gloom and Doom if you don’t hire them.

      Or they promise how they are always looking out for “your” best interests.

      ….”Been in a CAR accident?…neighbor’s DOG bit your child?…. did the hospital or doctor misdiagnose you or did some Malpractice on you?” Careless Truck driver hit your car? Worried about asbestos in your home insulation or the brake pads in your car may have caused your cancer?
      …. CALL us NOW… WE can get you the MONEY you deserve!!!”

      Now modify that a little bit and notice how Michael Snyder paints a lot of his stuff with some “religious, bible, Christian” coloring, and of course, politics too, and you’ll see all you need to see.

    Remember Reagan.

    The republican party didn’t want him either but they knew he was their only chance of getting a win. Within a couple of months of winning he was shot in favor of Daddy George Bush.

    Reagan didn’t want Bush as a running mate but the GOP threatened to with-hold the millions of dollars of party funds that back then you had to have to win.

    Rumor has it (Brokaw said so on Meet The Press week before last) that Trump didn’t want the solidly GOP and Pro TPP Pence as a running mate but he was talked into it because he needed a “solid” republican to bring in the base.

    Hopefully Trump knows that like Reagan he will have a target on his back the second he wins.

    +1, NaySayer. The BUSH Family and the CLINTON Family serve the “elites”: The ‘Committee of 300’, and the Western Int’l Central Bankers in the ‘City’ of London, their CHATHAM HOUSE, their CFR, their CIA, their WALL STREET BANKS, their “Federal” “Reserve”, their OIL corporations, their Weapons Manufacturers, their GCHQ, their NSA, their MI6, their Mossad, their Club of Rome, their Bilderberg Group, their Trilateral Commission, etc., etc., etc.
