It’s official… again! Donald Trump remains the winner of Wisconsin following the statewide recount demanded by Jill Stein and paid for by gullible snowflakes. After counting over 3 million ballots (at a cost of $3.5 million), Trump gained a net 162 votes, and Jill pocketed a cool mil.
As AP reports,
Republican Donald Trump’s victory in Wisconsin has been reaffirmed following a presidential recount that showed him defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton by more than 22,000 votes.
Trump picked up a net 162 votes as a result of the recount that the Wisconsin Elections Commission certified Monday. Green Party candidate Jill Stein requested and paid for the recount that began Dec. 1.
But after recounting nearly 3 million ballots, little changed. The final results changed by fewer than 1,800 votes.
Stein has also tried to get statewide recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania, but courts have stopped them after news reports began surfacing of vote fraud in favor of Hillary.
The worst of the problems were in Wayne County, Michigan’s largest county, where 66 percent of voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton and just 29 percent for Donald Trump.
There was such a problem, the Detroit News reported, “[O]fficials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month.”
The Detroit paper continued, “Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.”
Michigan’s state law says if a precinct’s poll books don’t match its ballots, then the original election results must stand. So if the democrats had not cheated they might get their recount.
But Wisconsin’s recount, unlike Michigan’s, uncovered no widespread problems or hacking as Stein had suggested, without evidence, that there might be.
As The Wisconsin State Journal reports, WEC chairman Mark Thomsen said in a statement…
“Completing this recount was a challenge, but the real winners are the voters.”
“Based on the recount, they can have confidence that Wisconsin’s election results accurately reflect the will of the people, regardless of whether they are counted by hand or by machine.”
The commission originally advised county clerks to complete their recount process by 8 p.m. Monday so it could certify the results on Tuesday, the last day federal law guarantees a state’s electoral votes will reflect the popular vote when the Electoral College convenes on Dec. 19.
On Monday the Board of Canvassers in the final four counties — Dane, Milwaukee, Outagamie and Rock — certified their results.
So that was a total and utter waste of $3.5 million of Democrats’ money.
