In an interview with Democracy Now, Moore said support for Trump hasn’t dropped “one inch” in key electoral states in the Midwest.

"If the vote were today, I believe he would win the electoral states that he would need. Because living out there, I will tell you, his level of support has not gone down one inch," he said.


Moore, an Academy Award winner and frequent critic of the president, added that Trump voters are "even more rabid" than before because “they are afraid he could lose.”

“They are voracious in their appetite for Donald Trump,” Moore said. "That’s the bad news.”

Moore said he remains optimistic about the 2020 general election, arguing that much of the electorate will be be made up of women, people of color and young adults. He added that this is why Democrats shouldn't nominate “another Hillary Clinton.”

"The Democrats who are encouraging moderation, go to the center — you know, 'Let’s not upset the angry white guys' — that’s really what it is,” said Moore, who has endorsed Sen.

Moore maintained in an interview earlier this week that Sanders has what it takes to beat Trump in 2020.

“He’s outside the box the way Trump was [in 2016],” Moore said in a Tuesday interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.
