2016: Obama's America

Conservative author Dinesh D'Souza's "2016: Obama's America" has surpassed three Michael Moore films at the box office, making it the second-highest-grossing political documentary, according to Deadline Hollywood.

Deadline reported that as of Saturday, "2016" had grossed $26.2 million, beating out Moore's "Sicko" ($24.5 million), the Oscar-winning "Bowling for Columbine ($21.5 million) and "Capitalism: A Love Story" ($14.3 million). It also topped Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" ($24.1 million). The numbers are not adjusted for inflation or higher ticket prices.

Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11," sharply critical of President George W. Bush, still holds the No. 1 spot at $119.1 million.

D'Souza told TheBlaze last month that the liberal filmmaker served as an inspiration of sorts in the making of "2016."

“Michael Moore made 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and he dropped it in the middle of the national debate,” D’Souza said. “The conditions look very similar, except we have a Democratic president, Obama, very controversial.”

Deadline noted that "2016" has been doing well in several hotly-contested battleground states, including Florida, Ohio, Colorado and Virginia. California, New York and Texas are also among the top states contributing to the film's box office success.
