In an appearance on The Huffington Post’s webcast on Thursday, filmmaker Michael Moore revealed that he is less-than optimistic about President Barack Obama’s chances against Mitt Romney.

Moore said the election’s going to come down to fundraising, and that Romney will have an edge over Obama.

“Mitt Romney is going to raise more money than Barack Obama,” Moore said. “That should guarantee his victory. I think people should start to practice the words ‘President Romney.’ To assume that the other side are 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.”

Watch:

Moore told HuffPo Live’s Josh Zepps that money will translate into a better get-out-the-vote operation for the Republican Party.

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