African-Americans in Michigan weigh in as state looks set to go to Trump

The New York Times' live forecast now gives Trump 48.7% in Michigan and Clinton 46.9%.
Valdave Penny, who works as a driver, says he’s voting for Clinton because he doesn't like the alternative.

"Donald Trump has no political experience," he says. "And he’s not for my people, I don’t think."

Penny says he thinks the community needs to rally for the Democrats in order to maintain progress that President Barack Obama has made in the country. "I think it’ll be better for our livelihood."

Brandon Lett, a machine operator, says he really doesn’t want either to become president. At the same time, he came out to vote for Clinton because he wanted to use his voice.

"I have an opinion, and I want to be heard," he says.

Jasmine McFarland, 24, says she also wanted to be heard and that those who choose not to vote cannot be upset with results.

"Everyone complains about the president, but not everyone votes. It’s better to come out here for one day and vote than to complain for the next four or eight years."
