What is Michael Moore’s prediction for the 2022 Midterm Elections? Democrats or Republicans?
Michael Moore, who predicted Donald Trump’s 2016 victory, has made a prediction about the 2022 Midterm Elections saying the pundits are wrong again.
Michael Moore, in the run-up to the 2022 Midterm Elections, has been publishing his “Tsunami of Truth” explaining why the pundits are wrong about the outcome this month. The documentary filmmaker, author and left-wing activist was a lone voice in 2016 when he explained why Donald Trump would win the presidency.
Beginning in late September Moore started presenting evidence to support his belief that “Roevember” will not be a “Red Tsunami” but the opposite, an utter rout for the Republican party. “The tens of millions of us who have had enough, are going to descend upon the polls en masse,” he wrote in the first installment.
The effect of which he says will be “a literal overwhelming, unprecedented tsunami of voters — and nonviolently, legally, and without mercy remove every last stinking traitor to our Democracy.” He plans to post a new bit of proof every day until the election to counter the downbeat messages from the mainstream press and supercharge the electorate to make his prediction come to fruition.
“Much of what many in the media are telling you is patently false and just plain wrong. They are simply regurgitating old narratives and stale scripts,” Moore wrote. “Let’s get fired up! Tune out the cynics and the naysayers! This is no time to be depressed! Roevember is coming baby and we are going to party like it’s 2029!!”
Republicans are “running the biggest batch of nutters”
Nearly two years on and after extensive debunking of the “Big Lie,” a majority of Republicans running for office still deny the legitimacy of the 2020 election. An analysis by the Washington Post found that nearly 300 of the 569 candidates they looked at have challenged or refused to accept President Joe Biden’s victory.
However, as the GOP trips over itself to remain cozy with the former president they have let a number of candidates get on the ballot that are lackluster to put it lightly. In Moore’s words the Republicans are “running the biggest batch of nutters nationwide in American electoral history.”
In his efforts to counter the narrative that there will be a red wave this month, Moore has selected the 10 biggest “whackadoodles” which will result in a Blue Tsunami. These candidates “are so insane, so absolutely bonkers they are handing their Democratic opponents the best early Christmas gift ever,” he says.
Incumbent Republicans losing to unknown newcomers
In September an incumbent member of the Boise Board of Education, Steve Schmidt, was up for re-election. The well-liked engineer as a Republican in a city which 73 percent of voters cast a ballot for Trump should have coasted to victory.
However, when he failed to disavow an endorsement of him by the Idaho Liberty Dogs, a local, far-right extremist group, nor forcefully denounce their actions, promoting library censorship and vile online rhetoric, Boise’s daily newspaper The Idaho Statesman decided to endorse his opponent Shiva Rajbhandari. The 18-year-old student is a progressive activist in his final year of high school who went door-to-door aggressively campaigning.
Perhaps the single biggest reason of the 44 Moore will present that the GOP candidates “are already doomed, defeated and demolished” is because of women. In his opinion Republicans “cooked their own geese” with respect to the majority gender when the Supreme Court “issued a religious edict” and overturned Roe in June.
The high court that the Republicans had worked hard to stack with three justices during Trump’s presidency put abortion rights front and center of the 2022 Midterms. Since the summer millions more women have registered to vote.
As well a drive to curb access to abortion at the ballot box in Kansas spectacularly failed. Normally in midterm years the turnout is lower, even more so during primaries. Republicans were trying to change the state constitution by inserting an anti-abortion amendment.
However, grassroots campaigning saw the attempt blocked by a massive surge of voters to the levels normally seen for presidential elections, 250 percent higher than the 2018 primary election. Three out of five Kansans voted against adding language stating that there is no right to an abortion in the state. Voters in five states will have an abortion related measure on their ballot in November.
