Moore was shocked that in Michigan, Republican challenger John James is close in polling with incumbent Democratic Sen. Gary Peters. In an interview with “Rising” by ‘The Hill,’ Moore also noted that when Trump campaigns in Michigan he is going to counties that are not “Trump counties,” but that went for Hillary in 2016.
“It’s awful news that Biden is ahead by 7 points in Michigan and I have to fight against this constantly,” Moore said. “I need to remind people that the poll back in July said at that point that Biden was ahead, in Michigan, by 16 points. Trump has cut that in half. Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where this morning Biden is 5 points ahead in Wisconsin. He’s maybe 3 points ahead in Florida, 2 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. It’s all fake news to them, remember.”
“It is not an accurate count,” Moore said of current polling. “I think the safe thing to do is — this is not scientific, I’m just saying from my experience of being a Michigander — whatever they are saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half right now in your head. Cut it in half and now you’re within the 4-point margin of error. That’s how close this is. That’s how desperately close this is.”
“When you see the Republican running for Senate in Michigan (John James) almost tied with our incumbent Democratic Senator, what is this telling us?” Moore asked.
“I’ve pointed out to people when Trump had the big rally 10 days ago in Muskegon, Muskegon County, or in the west side of the state on Lake Michigan — only two counties go up and down in the state of Michigan. Only two counties voted for Hillary on the west side of Michigan in 2016. Muskegon County was one of them. Trump choose not to go to a ‘Trump county,’ because he won the state, apparently. He went to a Hillary county and had thousands of people there,” he said.
“People keep asking me, ‘what do you think’s going to happen’ because they want the Cassandra because in 2016, I don’t know how many months it was before the election, I said that Trump’s going to win and he’s going to win by winning Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania,” Moore said. “And that got me no free entrances to any casino. It hasn’t done me any good. But now they expect me to know what’s going to happen next Tuesday. And of course, I don’t know. None of us know.”
“I wake up with the assumption every morning that Trump believes he’s going to win and that’s good enough for me. If he thinks he’s going to win then I think he’s going to win,” Moore said. “And I’m going to act every minute of today, and the rest of the day until I fall asleep after midnight. I’m going to be working to make sure he doesn’t win because he thinks he is going to win and he is an evil genius. And he’s smarter than all of us. And I know people hate to hear that and I’m sorry. To win the White House by losing the election, that’s genius. I don’t know know how to do that.”
