Surrogates galore in Michigan as campaign heats up

Since I posted Clinton regains double-digit lead over Trump in Michigan, the race here has tightened.   Epic-MRA, the same pollster I quoted in that last post more recently reported Clinton with a seven-point margin over Trump, while other polls have Clinton leading with by as little as one percent.  It's enough for FiveThirtyEight to lower Clinton's odds of winning Michigan from 86.2% last month to 78% now.  While that's still better than the 71.4% probability early in September, it's enough to attract the attention of both campaigns.  WXYZ had the story Tuesday in Michigan turns [in]to a battleground state for presidential election.

With just a week until election day, Michigan has turned into a battleground state with candidates and supporters fighting for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Hillary Clinton on Friday and Ivanka Trump yesterday.  WXYZ caught the latter visit along with one by Bill Clinton in Presidential campaigns push to win Michigan.

Former President Bill Clinton made a surprise visit to huddle with Detroit leaders about getting out the vote for his wife. Ivanka Trump also campaigned in Metro Detroit for her father.
The western side of the state also got its share of presidential proxies.  Follow over the jump for two reports from WOOD-TV.

First, like father like son as Protesters disrupt Trump Jr's GVSU rally.

Whenever a Donald Trump shows up in Michigan, people protest.  Ivanka apparently has better luck than her father and brother.

Finally, Bernie Sanders excites WMU days before election.

Bernie Sanders was on campus at Western Michigan University Wednesday to encourage students to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Here's to all those students feeling the Bern enough to vote for Clinton!
