Michigan goes to Trump
With seven critical Genessee County precincts now reporting results, Donald Trump appears to have won Michigan by 13,225 votes — a margin of less than three-tenths of a percent — out of more some 4.8 million cast, according to unofficial results posted late this morning by the state. Trump held a 12,488-vote lead over Hillary Clinton through the morning. But with all 83 Michigan counties reporting, Trump won 2,277,636 and Clinton 2,264,361. Trump’s margin of victory was exceedingly close: He won 47.6% compared to 47.33% for Clinton, according to state totals updated at 11:30 a.m. today.
I am informed that this is the worst Democratic performance in the Electoral College since Michael Dukakis.
