Donald Trump visits Michigan again, how in play is the state?

LANSING, MI -- Michigan's presidential vote has been true blue since 1992, but Republicans are hoping that Republican nominee Donald Trump can sway that in November.

"I'm on the ground all the time traveling the state and every day I run into voters who are so enthusiastic about Donald Trump, who have never voted Republican, who are changing parties just for him," said Michigan Republican Party Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel.

A polling average from Real Clear Politics shows Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's lead narrowing as the race progresses. In a head-to-head Clinton is leading by an average of 4.6 points. But as recently as late July and early August, polls routinely put her ahead by 10 percent.

And Trump is trying his hardest to narrow that gap even further. He's put a repeated emphasis on Michigan, and makes his fifth visit to Michigan since accepting the nomination on Friday....

Ford plant going to Mexico. Seems like some motivated Trump voters to me.

Ohio and Florida are Trump’s. Hillary is pulling out of those.

NC, Nevada, NJ, Michigan. All up for grabs / margin of error.

If the block voting blocks is truly breaking even 20% for Trump, the state is in play - seriously in play.

The fact that non-urbanites will agree with his economic message also weighs heavily in favor of it being in play.

Finally, I doubt Trump is silly enough to waste resources where they are already known to be fruitless.

Ford just announced yet another big ($2 BILLION as I recall) factory in Mexico

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!

(and Michigan also has a festering Moslem invasion problem)

He’s at the Studebaker and Kaiser-Frasier today. Then on to Duesenberg and AMC.

They keep saying swing states he is losing. Which ones? Not Ohio, Florida, NC or CO per the latest polls

Team Trump thinks turnout will win this, meaning the heavy D advantage won’t be an advantage.

I’d love to see the internal polls for the various swing states right now.

ha HA!! Just completed a phone survey from Detroit.
Hillary versus Trump, the debates etc.

Caller was most certainly black and very pro-Trump.

Life is good in Michigan. I keep on keeping on for Trump here...

Very much in play.

Hillary lost to Bernie quite decisively. I live in Grand Rapids, and Hillary support is no where near as rabid as Obama in 08. There are still Bernie signs up in yards!

West and northern Michigan are as good as Trump’s. SE Michigan is going to go to Trump by just enough to tilt the state.

Don't forget the heavy D voter fraud advantage in Michigan also, and a state Republican party to pusillanimous to do anything about it.

Blue collar guys and gals love Trump, and there are a LOT of these blue collar men and women in Michigan.

I would love to see Trump take Michigan on November 8th!
