The "Real Time" host told MSNBC's Joy Reid on the network's new prime-time program that he felt the same concern in 2016.

"I don't know if this stuff works, but it might," Maher said on "The ReidOut" regarding the production of the Republican National Convention, which wrapped up on Thursday night. Reid had noted that the convention was "smoothly produced."

"I am feeling less confident about this. Maybe it's just their convention bump got to me, but I'm feeling less confident than I was a month ago," Maher said.

"I feel very nervous, the same way I did four years ago at this time," he added later.

President Trump responded to a tweet from the program's official Twitter feed quoting Maher's nervousness about the election.

"Leading in Michigan, leading in Minnesota, leading all over. Sorry!" Trump wrote to his more than 85 million followers.

Recent polls have shown a tightening race between Biden and Trump in key battleground states, with the former vice president leading Trump by just 3 points in the RealClearPolitics index of major polls. 

The president is slated to visit Louisiana on Saturday after Hurricane Laura killed 14 people and caused widespread damage this past week.

Trump returned to the campaign trail with a rally in New Hampshire on Friday. The Biden campaign announced that the former vice president will resume campaign travel after Labor Day.
