Liftable Media Senior Political Analyst Floyd Brown has called the pivotal swing state of Michigan for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
As the race tightened on Election Night, pundits increasingly looked to Michigan as one of the states that will ultimately decide the 2016 White House race.

Some analysts remained wary of calling Michigan for Trump with just over half of the state’s precincts reporting as of around 11 p.m. Eastern Time.

Though most of the 2016 swing states have shown closer contests than Michigan, Clinton’s once sizable lead had diminished significantly by the end of October.
As CNN reported midway through the month, leaked audio of Trump making obscene and sexually aggressive remarks translated to a double-digit lead for the Democratic nominee.
At that time, women in the state were nearly twice as likely to support Clinton as they were to back Trump. In some areas of the state, the former secretary of state had opened up a nearly 20-point lead over her rival.
Even before the FBI’s announcement that it had reopened its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct State Department business, however, her commanding lead had shrunk to single digits.
The day before the bombshell announcement, RealClear Politics showed Clinton with less than a 6-point advantage over Trump in Michigan.
Team Trump worked to build on the momentum with not only the nominee, but running mate Mike Pence, members of Trump’s family and other surrogates making last-minute pleas to voters across the state.
