Donald Trump famously won the combined 56 electoral votes of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan by a total of 77,744 in the popular vote. Had those quarter-percentage-point squeakers gone the other way in the three states, Hillary Clinton would have won the Electoral College in addition to the popular vote, by a score of 283 to 248. It's no wonder that the president's re-election campaign is focused foremost on, well, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

Oh yes, playing spoiler to put a vile Democrat in office...
That will win you friends...
Amash is exhibit A in why voting for some Rs is worse than staying home and not voting.
Amash could put MI, OH in the balance, but he won’t win.
People who write stories like this are clueless. Not all the votes would swing from Trump to this guy. Trump is not necessarily going to be that close or the Dems candidate isn’t going to be that close. Two elections are never the same. They thought that Gore would be a shoe in next time around because he only slightly lost Florida. He never ran another race and the next election wasn’t decided by Florida
Honest to God, I believe most "libertarians" are mentally ill. I have never met one that wasn't tin-foil hat mentally deluded. They live in an alternate universe of misplaced idealism. They seem oblivious to the destruction that they have caused to this country. When their shenanigans result in the election of a "D" they are enabling their own enemy.
In their heads they have never left their college dorm rooms or collegiate watering holes.
“in addition to the popular vote”
Trump will not have trouble in the Midwest this time as the Democrats are punting that part of the country to him again by their ‘coastal’ behavior. So Justin will get his jollies, but he won’t be a factor.
Justin Amash is a Libertarian in a Republican uniform. His only strategy is dying on the wrong hill.
No, but then again I don’t understand why Arizona kept voting McCain.
Amash is the son of a Palestinian Christian father and a Syrian Christian mother ... I think a camel was involved as well ...
I just wish he would change party and get it over with. Tired of his false introspection. He is a grandstander.
