Michael Moore Warns Democrats Joe Biden’s Poll Lead ‘Not Accurate’
'Listen, don’t believe these polls, first of all'
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore has been warning Democrats all year not to underestimate President Donald Trump, and he's now suggesting the polls showing Joe Biden in the lead are wrong.
Moore appeared on The Hill TV’s “Rising,” where he noted Trump's ease of cutting Biden’s lead in half in the state of Michigan after the former vice president previously led him by 16 points.
Moore made a stark warning to Democrats who are allowing the polls to give them a false sense of security.
“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 [to five] points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona.’"
"Listen, don’t believe these polls, first of all,” Moore said.
“And second of all, the Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters, when they actually call a real Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the Deep State calling them and asking them who they’re voting for.”
Moore then suggested cutting Biden's lead in half in order to get the four-point margin of error.
“So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do—this is not scientific; I’m just saying from my experience of being a Michigander—whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head," Moore said.

"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!” he emphasized.
Moore has been sounding the alarm about the possibility of a Trump landslide and warned Democrats not to get complacent.
In August, Moore shared a poll that had Trump besting Biden by 2 points (47% to 45%), using it to highlight to Democrats they are not sounding the alarm loudly enough.
“Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden?” he tweeted.
“Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll, Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI 47-45. Yet so many Dems convinced Trump’ll lose. DANGER!”
In July, Moore described Trump as an "evil genius."
“I want to caution everyone, do not underestimate the evil genius that is Donald J. Trump."
"There are many examples throughout history, whether it’s Henry IV facing the French on St Crispin’s Day," Moore said.
Moore also warned Democrats that Joe Biden has nowhere near the amount of love and enthusiasm as Trump.
“Trump has lost none of his base, and they are more rabid than ever. Sleeping on the sidewalk for five nights just to get in to see Trump?" he stated.
