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.
Polls for the Presidential Election Are Tightening, And Fast
This race is getting hot.
New polls for the November presidential election are gravitating in President Donald Trump’s direction, after months of polling that indicated Democratic challenger Joe Biden was dominating the race.
Polls from Rasmussen and the Hill have indicated that the race is close, and even within the margin of error, with the President regaining several percentage points. Polling aggregator RealClearPolitics reveals that recent polls show the President has gained 3-5 percent support.

Polls in battleground states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania show a race that is statistically tied. A Zogby Analytics poll of North Carolina, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania showed a razor-thin race in the latter three states, with Biden leading by no more than three percentage points in all of them.
Trump’s gain in recent rounds of polling may be a product of a refocused campaign strategy, with the President branching out to the constituency of white working class voters that proved essential to his shock 2016 election victory after former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reassigned.
Razor-thin election margins could mean the election is once again decided by the electoral college, as Biden’s lead in national polling places undue consideration on large margins of victory in reliably Democratic states such as California and New York.
Biden has been reluctant to appear in public, scheduling only a handful of events in which he’s received questions from the press. The President’s increasingly focused coronavirus press briefings may have signaled his intention to successfully control the pandemic.
