Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore feels pretty good about the democrat’s chances in the upcoming midterm elections despite his estimation that around 25 percent of Americans “aren’t very bright.”

Moore believes he is right about a blue wave sweeping the nation on Nov. 8 because “he doesn’t live in a bubble” and correctly predicted that Donald Trump would slide into the oval office during the 2016 presidential election.
“First of all, I don’t live in a bubble,” Moore told MSNBC host Alex Witt on Saturday. ” I spend a great deal of time in the midwest, I travel the country making my films, whatever, so I pay attention and I listen to people.”
Known for spewing misinformation, he also cites the larger number of registered Democrats in the country and the fact that President Joe Biden and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.
“I’m very optimistic because there are more Democrats registered to vote in this country than there are Republicans by about 20 million. Biden won by seven million, the popular vote. Hillary won the popular vote by three million,” Moore said.

Claiming to be “just like a lot of basic everyday Americans,” Moore was apologetic to the population of MSNBC viewers -the minority of whom he believes cognitively challenged – but gave a pass to most because of what he believes is a primo choice in network news.
“The American people, they’re treated like they’re a bunch of dummies. They’re not idiots. Okay, now granted, there’s 330 million in the country, maybe a good 80 to 90 million aren’t very bright,” Moore explained. “No offense to those watching who aren’t very bright. You’re watching MSNBC, so I’m making an assumption that you know what’s going on.”

Witt asked if Moore thought the “kitchen table” issues like inflation, higher gas prices and jobs had the potential to push voters to vote for Republicans on the ballot.
Ignoring the kitchen table issues altogether, Moore cited bodily autonomy and the effects of overturning Roe v. Wade as more important issues to voters.
While it remains to be seen if Moore is right, polls have shown that voters, in particular suburban women voters, have shifted right politcially by 27 percent in the second half of this year.

Republican and Democrat pollsters alike have witnessed the focus changing from abortion to the economy with 54 percent of the demographic believing that the country is already in a recession and 74 percent believing that the economy is headed in the wrong direction.
“We’re talking about a collapse, if you will, in that group on the perceptions of the economy,” Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio explained.
Democrat pollster Molly Murphy weighed in with similar findings.
“It’s absolutely true that these women have shifted their gaze more on the economy than abortion. They think we’re in a recession. A majority are feeling financial strain in this economy,” Murphy said.
