2020 ELECTION/MICHIGAN: “Former President Donald Trump targeted the Republican-controlled Michigan Senate on Friday as he continued his efforts to mislead about the state’s 2020 election…

Trump also levied a misleading claim that ‘a dump of 149,772 votes came in to the State of Michigan’ on the morning of Nov. 4, a day after the election. Biden received 96% of those votes and the state went to him, the former president said.

It’s unsurprising that ballots counted later in the process would have gone heavily for Biden for two reasons. First, Trump raised a bevy of criticisms about absentee ballots that spurred some of his supporters not to use that method of voting, and, in many situations, absentee ballots were counted later than in-person votes. Second, large urban areas usually took longer to count their ballots, and those areas tended to vote overwhelmingly for Biden…

Among absentee voters and in-person voters, Biden received 94% of the vote in Detroit, and Trump 5%. It was a marked improvement for the former president from four years earlier, when Democrat Hillary Clinton got 95%, and Trump received 3%.”
