    The numbers are in: Trump wins Michigan by 10,704

    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.

    "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," according to a statement on the Secretary of State's website. "The county canvassing boards, as they do after every election, then began their work to review and certify the results from each precinct."

    Across the nation, Trump won 306 electoral votes -- including Michigan's 16 -- to 232 for Clinton. In the popular vote, Clinton holds a lead of more than 2 million votes.

    Trump is the first Republican presidential candidate since 1988 to win Michigan.

    The vote totals that will be submitted to the state Canvassers Board on Nov. 28 are:

    Donald J. Trump, Republican: 2,279,543
    Hillary Clinton, Democratic: 2,268,839
    Gary Johnson, Libertarian: 172,136
    Jill Stein, Green: 51,463
    Darrell L. Castle, U.S. Taxpayers: 16,139
    Evan McMullin, write-in: 8,177
    Emidio Mimi Soltysik, Natural Law: 2,209

    Donald Trump Wins Michigan; Becomes First Republican to Do So Since 1988

    Donald Trump has officially won the state of Michigan, making him the first Republican to do so since George H. W. Bush in 1988.

    In the tightest race in Michigan’s electoral history, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by 10,704 votes after results from all 83 of the state’s county clerks were counted and certified.

    This brings Donald Trump’s electoral vote total to 306. Hillary Clinton’s is 232.

    “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,” a statement on the Michigan Secretary of State website reads.

    “The county canvassing boards, as they do after every election, then began their work to review and certify the results from each precinct,” it continued.

    Part of Trump’s success in typically Democratic Rust Belt states, such as Michigan, was due to his promise to return jobs to the region, emphasizing his plans to bring back investment from companies that have moved overseas.

    The idea that Hillary Clinton could lose Michigan only sunk in during the last weeks of the campaign, where she visited places such as Grand Rapids and Detroit, while President Obama was sent to campaign in Ann Arbor.

    Meanwhile, Michigan remains one of the states where Green Party candidate Jill Stein is demanding a recount, having already raised $3.5 million to pay for recounts in states such as Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
