Trump supporters came from across Metro Detroit to converge upon the Emagine Theater in Novi, MI where approximately 400 patriots attended the largest watch party for the State of the Union (SOTU) address in Michigan on Tuesday night.
The event, put on by the Michigan Trump Republicans, demonstrated the momentum that is building for the Trump campaign, as this event eclipsed all similar events the group has held in previous years by a wide margin. The impeachment debacle has fired up the conservative grassroots, and they are ready for a fight from now until November.
The anecdotal evidence is backed up by polling data, which has shown that the impeachment witch hunt has helped President Trump in the key battleground states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania when it comes to head-to-head match-ups against likely Democrat opponents.
Attendees of the event were raving about President Trump’s third SOTU speech, which included a strong rebuke of socialism, a heralding of the progress made on the economy and trade, a salute to America’s bravest and most valiant heroes, and the awarding of conservative icon Rush Limbaugh with the Medal of Freedom.
“Trump’s speech was uplifting,” said precinct delegate Kathy Kubik of Commerce Township. “He loves and believes in America and the people of this country. With the media telling us our country isn’t great, Trump gives me hope that my grandchildren will still have a free country to live in.”
“I feel that the GOP will have an impressive showing nationwide while re-taking the house and re-electing the president,” said Chase Turner, a Republican state house candidate running for an open seat in the 38th district.
“The grassroots is fired up to make that happen, and I believe they will be the backbone behind a major GOP wave in 2020,” he added.
“I’ve never been more proud to stand by this administration and this President,” said Meshawn Maddock, who leads the Republican Party in the 11th Congressional District and organizes Michigan Trump Republicans meet-ups across the state.
The only thing that sparked anger from the otherwise jovial Michigan conservatives at the event was the behavior of the Democrats, in particular House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) when she ripped up the transcript of President Trump’s address for the cameras.
“It is stunning that President Trump is so carelessly disrespected by Nancy Pelosi and her leftist colleagues as he does nothing to but work tirelessly for the American people,” Maddock said, adding that Pelosi’s classlessness will make Trump’s re-election victory even easier come November.
“The President couldn’t have been any more clear in how much he loves America while Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have proven once again why they are the party of division,” Turner said.
“We are fired up and after Pelosi kept looking foolish during Trump’s entire speech and then tore his speech up at the end, it just made us all more determined to beat these people and vote out Democrats,” Kubik said.
While Trump may have won Michigan by a narrow margin in 2016, he could carry the state in far greater numbers if the strength of the grassroots is any indicator.

Mitt Romney Admits: Trump Likely to Be Re-Elected
Just weeks ago, Romney was voting to impeach Trump.
Mitt Romney admitted during a Munich Security Conference panel in Germany that President Donald Trump is “likely” to be re-elected on Friday.
Romney’s admission could be interpreted as a tacit admission that the Utah Republican was seeking to overturn the likely will of the American voter in the 2020 election. Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict Trump on Democratic impeachment charges, claiming he warranted removal from office for temporarily suspending foreign aid to Ukraine.
“I can tell you I think it’s likely he will get reelected, not because he’s highly popular, but because I think the Democrats are not going to nominate someone who’ll be a very effective competitor.”
Romney’s answer when asked about Trump’s re-election chances seems to suggest he believes Democrats are going to nominate Bernie Sanders. Establishment conservatives such as Romney often tend to underestimate populist political figures such as Sanders in a similar manner that they did Trump in the 2016 election. (Romney did admit that he “did not predict that President Trump would become President Trump.”)
Romney was lauded for his impeachment vote by the crowd at the annual event, a mainstay institution for the western political elite. A moderator for the panel claimed he “probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States.”
The failed 2012 presidential candidate may have alienated himself even further from the Republican party with remarks that seemed dismissive of his Senate colleagues, describing them as beholden to the President.
In what may have been his most self-reflective remarks of the night, Romney admitted there was little to no desire among the American public for the outdated liberal conservative principles he’s known for.
“Right now, the nature of American politics is highly populist… I’m perhaps a throwback. I jokingly say I have about 2% of the population that’s with me.”
I think that might be a bit on the high side, Mitt.
