Bill Maher Reveals Why He’s ‘Very Nervous’ That Biden Will Lose To Trump

During Friday’s episode of his HBO show “Real Time,” Bill Maher revealed why he’s “very nervous” that Joe Biden will lose to President Donald Trump.

Maher Admits RNC Hurt Biden

While talking to MSNBC host Joy Reid, Maher said that he thinks that the Republican National Convention’s optimism will prove very effective, and will cause enthusiasm for Biden to tank.

“I don’t know if this stuff works, but it might,” Maher said. “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 went on to say that the GOP’s strategy of presenting diversity —in the face of the DNC emphasizing conformity— has caused him to question Biden’s electability.

“People do have their own minds. I’ve never been a fan of conformity. I’ve never been a fan of, ‘We all wear pink on Wednesday,’ we all have to do this, we all have to say this, we all have to do this then,” Maher said. “I don’t bend the knee and I get that people are pushing back at that kind of stuff.”

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

Maher Talks Trump Acceptance Speech

Maher then said that the optics of Trump’s nomination acceptance speech, which was given at the White House with an audience that did not conform to face mask requirements, will likely resonate with the American people.

“To portray that idea that ‘I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees,’ yes, I think that is attractive to a degree,” Maher explained. “They looked optimistic, they looked like the country isn’t falling apart, even though the country is falling apart. And optimism very often wins elections.”

This comes after it was revealed that Biden’s lead over Trump had shrunk after the RNC. Before the convention, Biden led by a 10-point margin, 52% to 42% among likely voters. Since then, Biden’s lead has shrunk by four points, as he now only leads by a six-point margin: 50% to 44%.

  • Well, Bill, looks like that "recession" you were hoping for (to cost Trump his re-election) didn't work! Even with the COVID19, you guys couldn't keep this good man down...imagine, you couldn't care less about people being hurt by a recession, just to get at Trump! Don't tell me you care about people...

  • Don't believe the polls but be sure to vote. 
    This election is way too importent.
    Also expect "Socialist Democrats" to try to cheat.
    For them, their Marxist outcome justifies any means taken.

  • When the Democrats have to fall all the way back on the 2016 "Russian interference" you know they are in deep ****! They are already starting the "Trump stole the election" 2 months before the election.

  • What difference should it matter to you Hollyweirdos Maher?
    Regardless of who wins, you'll still be getting your big bucks.

  • The Democrat Party needs to DUMP BIDEN. NOW. Before it's too late. He's a loser and they know it. They didn't nominate him because of policy, leadership, or principles. They nominated Old Broken Joe because they thought he could "beat Trump". Now they realize that was DUMB. People vote FOR someone because they believe in their ideas, principles, and RESULTS. Biden has none. He's a ZERO. He's a Nothing. Dump Biden now!

  • Shall we get this straightened out here and now? Biden NEVER had a ten point lead, a five point lead, or ANY lead over POTUS. EVER. Okay. NOW to Bill Maher - you seem to speak of all the excellent people and principles shown at the RNC in a very positive light, which is right. So, then why are you afraid to embrace the right?

  • DNC’s message: DOOM and GLOOM!!!
    RNC’s message: BRIGHT SUNSHINE; and THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!!
    Your choice!
