5. Don't get too nervous
The polling has taken place in counties where Rick Snyder is favorable. The auto industry and unions are hard at work to get Virg elected. Our job is to encourage the base to come out. Let your friends and family know four years from now will be to late to change their mind. Hell it is what it is on November 3. We have a strong base that has many ethnic backgrounds to it. He has alienated all minorities. This may be a problem with Mr. Snyder. He has not engaged with all the people of this state. He is using the Southern Strategy right here in Michigan. He and his campaign have also isolated him from the media. He chooses not to engage with voters who's vote he must win. The closet he can engage is with a commercial showing a black man. To appear friendly to minorities.

Voter Suppression has already started. I have had complaints that people don't know where their voting center is because of school closings. They had problems getting Absentee ballots in a timely fashion (some still don't have one),The phone lines to the election commission in Detroit was busy or you would be put on hold until the line disconnects. And if they tell you Rick Snyder is winning in the polls you will feel its useless to come out and vote. This is what they are counting on. Do not give into the hype. Do what you do. Tell friends and relatives and who ever you must. If you can offer a ride on election day then do so. Together yes we can make a difference.
