There's reason to be excited. The early adopters of Ron Paul have been doing good work to convert their family and friends into Ron Paul supporters. Michigan does have a long way to go though, there's a lot disconnected voters. This year I was able to get my dad to vote Paul. He is an avid Levin/Limbaugh listener and is a Neo-con, but I consider this an large personal accomplishment that signifies that people are ready for a change.
