All across the left, sirens can be heard blaring as state polls tighten and the chances of an upset victory by President Donald Trump inch higher.

The growing concern among leftists — or at least those who’ve refused to allow hubris to cloud their judgment — is that the polls are grossly wrong.

But it’s not fringe figures who’re spouting these concerns — it’s everybody from elected Democrats to notorious left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore.

Speaking on CNN’s “New Day” this Thursday morning, for instance, Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell straight-up said, “I don’t believe any of the polls. I don’t think anybody is up tremendously. I think it’s competitive.”

Why? Because what she’s seen and felt on the ground hasn’t matched polling averages, which as of Friday had Democrat nominee Joe Biden up by 6.5 points.

“It’s tightening here in Michigan. … And yesterday, I had — some of the autoworkers who I thought were going to go back to Joe Biden, were very clear with me last night they were voting for President Trump. And I think what we’re seeing now is that on the ground, people have to turn out their votes,” she said.

Listen to the full discussion below:

She added that Biden needs to do more to reach out to blue-collar workers.

“I think in these last days, people are focused on turning out the Detroit, Flint votes — which matter greatly and may not quite be at the numbers people would like to see — and suburban women, but we cannot … forget that autoworker, the steelworker, teamster, whose jobs they’ve lost and are worried about, and they want to know as Democrats we care,” she said.

Yet that’s not what the Democrat nominee has done. Rather, in recent weeks he’s vowed to end the oil and gas industries and roll back President Donald Trump’s steel and aluminium tariffs. According to Bank of America analyst Timna Tanners, the reversal of these tariffs would reportedly negatively affect prices.

It doesn’t help that Biden has a history of disrespecting and looking down on working class Americans.

[L]ook, you want to know what an autoworker said to me last night? He said, ‘I’m tired of your Democratic friends, they look down on me,” Dingell added.

She’s not alone in sharing these concerns.

During an appearance Thursday on The Hill TV’s “Rising,” Moore, the notoriously loud leftist who correctly predicted a Trump upset in 2016, offered virtually the exact same warning for this year’s presidential election. And like Dingell, he also expressed suspicion over current polling data.

“Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where — what are they saying this morning? … ‘Biden’s five points ahead in Wisconsin… maybe three [to five] points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona,’” he said.

Listen, don’t believe these polls, first of all. And second of all, the Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters, when they actually call a real Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the Deep State calling them and asking them who they’re voting for.

Listen to his remarks below:

“So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do—this is not scientific, I’m just saying from my experience of being a Michigander—whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head,” he continued.

“Cut it in half, and now you’re within the four-point margin of error. That’s how close this is! That’s how desperately close this is!”

Unfortunately, Moore’s realistic concerns about Biden losing the election were followed by insane remarks about the president.

“The whole country is sick and tired of Donald Trump, number one. Number two, he has killed — let’s give him the first 50,000, maybe that would have have happened anyway — but he’s killed almost 200,000 people,” the filmmaker said.

Fact-check: WRONG.

One, the president’s approval rate is hovering around a high of 45 percent, and two, 1.188 million people have died globally from the coronavirus, meaning that the suggestion that the president is to blame for the virus’s impact is illogical.

Dovetailing back to the polls, even Biden’s campaign seems to be distrustful of them.

“Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign is urging supporters not to ‘become complacent’ despite polling that shows the former vice president leading President Trump nationally and in key battleground states, adding that supporters should ‘campaign like we’re trailing,'” The Hill reported about two weeks ago.

“In a memo obtained by The Hill on Saturday, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said that with almost two weeks left until Election Day, supporters should not automatically assume that Biden is guaranteed to win.”

But just like in 2016, there’s a contingent of far-left voices who’re convinced 100 percent that Biden is destined for victory come November.
