Trump won Michigan in 2016
Michigan helped Trump to the presidency in 2016 when he beat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the mitten state by a narrow margin of 0.23%, with 47.50% of the total votes over Clinton’s 47.27%. That was Michigan’s smallest margin of victory for a presidential candidate in its history.
The 2016 presidential election was the first time Michigan elected a Republican president since George H.W. Bush did so in 1988.
