Jill Stein’s push for recounts in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to ensure “election integrity” and “shine a light on just how untrustworthy the U.S. election system is” appears to be a waste of millions of dollars so far.
The recount in Wisconsin that election official’s estimate will cost around $3.5 million started today, and the results are disproving claims that fraud or technological problems swayed the results in favor of President-elect Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller reported that at the end of the first day of Wisconsin’s presidential recount, the gap between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump only narrowed by a single vote.
The first results to emerge suggest the final tally will be rather close to the original one. Only Menominee County, home to the Menominee Indian Reservation, fully reported its recounted results on the first day. It found 17 extra votes for Stein and 12 for Libertarian Gary Johnson, while removing two votes from Trump and one from Clinton.
When putting all the results together, that means the first day of the recount narrowed the gap between Clinton and Trump by just a single vote.
If the results for the recount in Wisconsin continue to show small differences like this, it is practically impossible Hillary will be able to take over the 22,000 vote gap between her and Trump.
