Early results from Wisconsin’s presidential vote recount are in, and Hillary Clinton has narrowed Donald Trump’s margin of victory by, drum roll please… one vote.
Jill Stein, the ‘progressive’ Green Party candidate, seized upon allegations from a group of left-wing ‘experts,’ some of whom work in the field of IT, to call for the recount. The group’s theory was that certain precincts used voting machines that could have been hacked to swing the vote in Trump’s favor. To date, no proof or knowledge of any such actual tampering has been uncovered.
Stein pushed forward with the demand for a recount despite warnings that it would be the ultimate of longshots and a waste of millions of dollars raised for the effort.
The lone Wisconsin county to report a final tally on the first day of the recount reported 17 additional votes for Ms. Stein and 12 more Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton totaled two fewer and one fewer, respectively.
A swing of one vote, 22,000+ to go!
