They didn't even have ballots for Democrats to vote on for over two hours at my voting place and other places around the city were reporting two-three hour waiting in line for all voters. It's going to take time to count them all. Too close to call on both sides right now at 9:00 PM because the two biggest counties have not yet reported in.

It kind of proves the old adage -- the only bad PR is no PR.

They were inadvertently giving his name airtime and press by trashing him.

CNN is fun to watch tonight. Jeffrey Lord is out so the young guy Andy Dean is the Trump supporter. All the experienced political analysts are trying to outsmart him, but hes doing well. Sort of a microcosm of the election watching the elites go after Trump.

The polling showed the polling of the entire state. Returns do not come in evenly. It's only 'amazing' if you do not understand this.

Wayne County - population 1.8 million, heavily black - hasn't reported yet.
Genesee County (Flint) - population 450+ thousand - hasn't reported yet.

Guess who is going to win those counties - which, combined, have a quarter of the population of the state?

Trump crushed it in Michigan......Chuck Todd pimping for Hillary despite a BIG loss for Hillary in a major state.

A lot of time left for things to change, but Rubio in single digits. Is this a new trend where Rubio keeps coming in 4th? Does that hurt his prospects for FL?
Literally more than 99% of Michigan is in the Eastern Time Zone. Only a sliver of the Upper Peninsula is in the Central time zone. 3% of Michiganders live in the Upper Peninsula and less than 1% of the Upper Peninsula lives in the Central Time Zone section.

They will start counting the ballots right away from the Eastern Time Zone that closes 8PM EST, even though a sliver of Michigan is in the Central Time Zone and has theirs close at 8PM CST or 9PM EST.
