It took the state of Michigan forever to tally their final vote. But the results are in and Trump won the state.
That makes this the final electoral college vote: Trump and Pence 306 vs. Clinton and Kaine 232
Can you say landslide?
The Detroit Free Press reported:
The numbers are in: Trump wins Michigan by 10,704
In the closest race for president in Michigan’s history, Republican Donald Trump is hanging on to a 10,704 vote win over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The Michigan Secretary of State posted results Wednesday that were submitted by the state’s 83 county clerks on Tuesday after the votes were reviewed and certified by each county.
Before that compiled count, Trump held a 13,107 lead over Clinton. But after each county certified its results, the lead shrunk to 10,704, with the biggest chunk coming from Wayne County, which showed that Clinton had gotten 565 more votes than originally tallied by the county.
The state’s Board of Canvassers will officially certify the results on Nov. 28. The electoral college in all the states, including Michigan’s 16 electors, will cast their votes on Dec. 19.
As Trump staffer Dan Scavino Jr. points out, this is the first time a Republican has won Michigan since 1988.
