Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton called for a recount in Wisconsin and sure enough, Hillary is gaining ground in the futile attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.
After the first full day of recounting the votes in Wisconsin, Hillary Clinton has gained one vote on Trump.
In November, Trump won Wisconsin by only one percent or roughly 22,000 votes. Apparently that was too close for Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate who finished fourth in the state with 30,980 votes, as she raised money and pushed for the recount.
The first results have come in from the recount and in Menominee County, the recount found 17 votes for Jill Stein that were not counted. Gary Johnson had 12 more people support him than originally.
So far, Clinton and Trump had one and two votes removed respectively.
Hillary still has a long way to go if she wants to try and win in a recount, but she narrowed the gap by one vote so far.
Back in 2000 when Florida held a recount, the original vote had the two candidates only 500 votes away from each other.
Out of almost six million votes, Bush won by less than 500. When it is that close, of course we should recount.
Wisconsin has less than half the total number of voters that Florida had in 2000 and Trump won Wisconsin by over 20,000 votes. Yet, the recount goes on.
There is no possibility that the recount will actually change the election results, and Hillary will not become the president all of a sudden.
The disturbing part of this whole story is the Democratic Party and Hillary chastised Trump when he said he wouldn’t automatically accept the results of the election. They attacked him because they thought they would win. They didn’t win and now the DNC and Hillary are all doing the same thing they criticized Trump for talking about.
