It’s official: The majority of Michigan voters elected Donald Trump to be the nation’s next president.
According to election totals, Trump won Michigan by .28 percent of the vote — roughly 13,000 votes.
“The vote was 47.59 to Trump and 47.31 for Hillary Clinton,” WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief said live on WWJ Newsradio. “The 16 electoral votes for Michigan go to Donald Trump and the Republicans, the first time that’s happened since 1988.”
Now that the dust has settled, Trump is projected to win 306 electoral votes against Hillary’s 232 (according to Wikipedia). SOUNDS LIKE A LANDSLIDE TO ME!
