While national media outlets have said Michigan remains too close to call in the presidential race, the state’s largest newspaper, the Detroit Free Press, has called Hillary Clinton as the winner over Donald Trump.

According to the Free Press:

A look at a majority of key precincts across the state by the Free Press’ political analyst Tim Kiska indicated that Clinton would win, beating Republican Donald Trump and maintaining a seventh straight presidential cycle in which the Democrats were expected to hold Michigan.

Sixty-five of 80 key precincts analyzed by the Free Press showed Clinton holding a 4-percentage point lead, less than a point behind President Barack Obama’s margin of victory in those same precincts four years ago.

The newspaper broke down its reasoning for the call in a Facebook Live video, which you can watch below or by clicking here:

The Free Press got it wrong because they WANTED Shrillary to win. No other explanation needed after most of the MSM also got it wrong BEFORE the actual results came in. I suspect they were ONLY sampling from Detroit and it’s immediate suburbs, which did go for the corrupt lying one.
