Donald Trump has just officially won the great state of Michigan, making him the first to do so since George H. W. Bush in 1988 (that’s almost 30 years—this truly was a historic election).
This election saw the tightest race in Michigan’s electoral history. Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by a total of 10,704 votes. This news comes after all 83 counties within the state finally had official verification from voting clerks’ offices.
The end result is a huge 306 electoral votes for Trump, and a measly 232 for Hillary (the worst the Democratic Party has done in decades).
The Michigan Secretary of State made an official statement regarding the entire process:
“Many people have asked about Michigan’s process for counting ballots and certifying election results. Please be aware that all 1,521 Michigan cities and townships completed ballot counting and reported unofficial results by the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 9.”
It’s clear that Trump’s success in many “Democratically-favored” areas came down to his promises to restore industrial vitality and create massive amounts of jobs.
In the midst of this great victory though, Jill Stein has initiated a full legal recount (with the funding of George Soros). Currently, no one is quite sure what will happen next. All that is certain, is that Trump won the election fair and square. If anything happens to change the outcome now, we will all witness the end of Democracy in the free world.
It is a great day for Trump in Michigan, but now the real race begins: can we make it to January 20th?
