Republican President-elect Donald Trump defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by 10,704 votes in the state of Michigan, according to certified unofficial county-by-county results released on Wednesday by the Michigan secretary of state.

Trump received 2,279,543 votes compared with Clinton’s 2,268,839, according to figures posted on the secretary of state’s website. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson received 172,136 votes and Green candidate Jill Stein won 51,463.

Nine other candidates shared a total of nearly 30,000 additional votes in the presidential campaign in Michigan, the figures showed. The results will remain unofficial until they are reviewed and approved by the Board of State Canvassers on Nov. 28.

Some media organizations did not call a winner of the presidential race in Michigan on election night because of the closeness of the race. Michigan is the last state where the winner was not yet clear.

The final unofficial tally gave Trump a slightly narrower victory than previous counts. A count as of Nov. 15 reported by CNN, for example, showed Trump winning 2,279,805 votes and Clinton winning 2,268,193, a margin of 11,612 votes.

    I, a leftist all my live, am proud to have been one of those 10,704 voters for Trump. My wife was another. I cannot speak for my friends and my neighbors, most supporters of Bernie, who were upset with Hillary and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. In Michigan all ballots have paper track. If contested, all counties must be recounted because I barely saw yards signs for any candidate in typical Democratic neighborhoods of West Bloomfield and Farmington Hills. People were afraid to show their support for Trump but voting is secret. I am sure that Trump got a lot more than reported considering that the never Trumpers control the state voting apparatus.

      I agree, like the polls were a lie, so were the popular votes, Trump went in by a landslide, the left just keeps using the popular vote BS so they can have an excuse to do all this stupid rioting! They found over 7 million illegal votes for Hellary! http://www.infowars.com/proof-donald-trump-won-the-popular-vote/
