    Michael Moore Predicts ‘President Romney’ In November

    WASHINGTON (CBS WASHINGTON) – Filmmaker Michael Moore predicted that the influence of money in politics will propel Mitt Romney to a victory over President Barack Obama in this year’s election.

    In an interview with Huffington Post Live on Thursday, Moore said he believes if the election were conducted in an “American Idol” format where “America could vote from their couches,” then Obama would win the election easily.

    “Mitt Romney is going to raise more money than Barack Obama. That should guarantee his victory,” Moore told HuffPost host Josh Zepps. “I think people should start to practice the words ‘President Romney.’ To assume that the other side is just a bunch of ignoramuses who are supported by people who believe that Adam and Eve rode on dinosaurs 6,000 years ago is to completely misjudge the opposition.”

    Moore – director of the documentaries “Fahrenheit 9/11” and the Academy Award-winning “Bowling For Columbine” – said that the Republicans will utilize their financial advantage to organize and win the presidential election.

    Moore iterated that the Republicans are highly motivated and implied that “hate is a strong emotion” that they are utilizing. Moore went on to say that Obama’s base is more apathetic than they were in 2008, and they need to get back to that past enthusiasm.

    “This election’s going to be decided on who gets out the most people that day, Moore told HuffPost Live. “Who’s up at four in the morning, making sure that dozens, hundreds, thousands of people in their communities are getting out to vote?”

    “And the Republican machine that is set up and the money behind it to guarantee [what] is really the only important thing — turnout on that day — that’s what looks pretty scary here.”

    According to Moore, huge numbers of young people, African-Americans and white women will need to come out and vote for Barack Obama in order for the Democrats to win the election this November.

    Looking at the electoral map, I just don't see how Romney wins.

    Without even looking at the Map, I already feel that Obama will have the next 4 years in office...

    Five thirty eight is a pretty reliable site and his predictions have been rather accurate while Moore has been wrong before. Yet I think Moore is on to the fact that Obama has a lot more apathetic voters this time around who are not nearly as well organized and financed as Romney's. Romney does have a lot more money behind him and will be able to drum up more organization from a very disciplined get-out-the-vote crowd. Obama only won last time due to the massive young and minority vote he received. He lost the white woman vote only slightly. The only way I see Obama winning again is if he has the same kind of youth/minority numbers as well as the woman votes. Otherwise big money is going to decide this.

    Nobody had better be knocking on my door or otherwise trying to encourage my vote at four in the frickin' morning!

    Romney's "stiff" performance and Ryan's speech filled with bullshit will probably go a long way to solidifying Obama's reelection...

    It already looks like they've had little or no "bump" from the convention...

    Um, Obama is going to have the womens' vote, to say the least...

    I don't.

    Clint's not running for office. It's a non-issue. This kind of stupid bullshit is the reason this election is as close as it is.

    All that matters is Romney.

    I voted for McCain in 2008, I will vote for Obama this time around because the GOP has nominated an uninspiring, unrealistic candidate. I don't care about crazy Missouri Senators, I don't care about the governor of New Jersey, and Clint can talk to all of the chairs he wants to.

    Why? None of it matters. Only Romney. His past, and his present.

    Clint did say some good things. Looking back, it wasn't all bad.
