Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore thinks that Democrats had better get ready for a very tough fight in the 2020 presidential election.
Even though polls continue to show that President Donald Trump is historically unpopular, Moore believes that the president’s base is fired up to reelect him and will crawl over glass to vote for him again next year.
In particular, Moore was struck by the massive enthusiasm that greeted the president at his big kickoff rally in Orlando, Florida.
“I watched the whole thing last night,” Moore wrote, referring to the rally. “I know no one wants to waste that kind of time even looking at him, but not wanting to see the enormity of the fight ahead doesn’t make it go away. He hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base. Are you ready?”

Even though polls show Trump is currently losing to all major Democratic candidates heading into the 2020 election, polls similarly showed that Hillary Clinton had a sizable lead over Trump at this point in the 2016 campaign cycle.

Wild poll out of Texas finds Black Lives Matter more popular than the NRA in the Lone Star State
I'm a strong believer in paying attention to the polling averages rather than obsessing over individual polls, but rules are meant to be broken and a survey released on Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas, Tyler has some internal numbers that are worth digging into. So with the caveat that it's a single poll that's subject to error and offers only a snapshot in time, let's take a peek under the hood.
Most reports focus on the topline numbers, which have Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by five points, 48-43. That's somewhat worse for the incumbent than RealClearPolitics average, which shows the state in a dead tie with 45 percent of the vote for each candidate. But this isn't a crazy outlier; Quinnipiac had Biden up by four points in its early June survey, and the former Vice President has led the incumbent by smaller margins in several other recent polls.
RNC’s attack on Joe Biden backfires – internet cheers old photo of Joe holding his young son in his arms
RNC Rapid Response Director Steve Guest on Monday tweeted a photo of a young Joe Biden, cradling in his arms either Hunter Biden or his now-late son, Beau Biden. In the decades-old image the young child is wearing a Washington Redskins hat.
Guest appended a question to his tweet: "Hey Joe Biden are you still a Redskins fan?"
Early Monday the Redskins announced they are "retiring" their team's racist name, amid tremendous pressure from the left.
The attack backfired, as many on social media fell for the endearing photo of the young U.S. Senator in a warm, very personal moment with his child.
