The results from the first day of the Wisconsin recount are in, and Hillary Clinton is one step closer to stealing the presidency from Donald Trump…Sort of.
Daily Caller reported that the gap between Trump and Clinton in the state narrowed by exactly one vote in the first day of the recount.
The initial vote in Wisconsin had Trump beating Clinton by just over 22,000 votes, but Green Party candidate Jill Stein is demanding a recount after suggesting fraud or technological glitches may have swayed the results. Wisconsin submitted to Stein’s pleas by starting their recount yesterday, but the initial results suggest that he results will likely stay the same.
Menominee County, home to the Menominee Indian Reservation, was the only county to report their results on Thursday. They found 17 extra votes for Stein and 12 for Libertarian Gary Johnson and removed two votes from Trump and one from Clinton. When putting all this together, it means Clinton gained on Trump by one measly vote.
At this pace, Clinton will overtake Trump in Wisconsin in 74 and a half years. Sadly for her, the recount won’t last that long, as it is set to just take two weeks.
This comes after Trump released a statement to Bloomberg in which he slammed Stein and her movement:
“The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and then look to the future.’
This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount.
All three states were won by large numbers of voters, especially Pennsylvania, which was won by more than 70,000 votes.
This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing.”
