It looks like media reports of Mr. Trump's death in Michigan have been greatly exaggerated: an ad buy is on the way, polls are tightening, staff is expanding, and impressively, more people came out to support Donald Trump in the streeets Tuesday than have attended Hillary's 3 rallies in Michigan COMBINED during the 2016 campaign-that ought to tell you something!

The event was organized by grassroots Trump supporters via the Michigan Conservative Coalition,  and from Flint to Traverse City-and all across Pure Michigan-Trump supporters responded.

“We were overwhelmed by the turnout! With two sites added at the last minute, we are ecstatic to report that based on our Corner Captain’s reports, an estimated 2,700 Trump supporters rallied (Tuesday). That is a huge turnout,” said Rosanne Ponkowski, President of Michigan Conservative Coalition.

Flash mobs were held at 25 locations in 19 counties across Michigan....

According to Lauren Gibbons of MLive:

"Five of the flash mobs took place in Oakland County, and two each were organized in Wayne and Macomb counties. Other locations included intersections in Jackson, Muskegon, Genesee, Saginaw, Kent, Kalamazoo and Livingston counties, among others.

Maddock said the coalition was made fun of for its flash mob plans at first - she said critics asked how a bunch of people holding signs would help win the election. But the flash mobs blossomed into a larger affair than Maddock or any other organizers imagined.

The group had done flash mobs for state House and Senate races in years past, but the response for the Trump events "just exploded beyond our wildest dreams," Michigan Conservative Coalition President Rosanne Ponkowski said...

The Trump campaign was not formally involved with the flash mobs, but Michigan State Campaign Director Scott Hagerstrom commended the group's work in a statement.

"The grass roots support for Mr. Trump is unlike anything I have ever seen in politics and contrasts sharply with the complete lack of energy behind Hillary Clinton's campaign," Hagerstrom said."
