Trump’s lead grows

We’ve been following the Wisconsin recount efforts instigated by failed Green Party presidential candidate, Jill Stein.

Wisconsin’s deadline is 8:00 PM, December 12. All reports indicate they’re on track to complete the recount on time. The recount has been remarkably drama-free and as we blogged yesterday, very little has changed in terms of ballot counts.

Our friend Mr. Morrissey has been keeping close tabs on the recount efforts:

This evening, Fox26 reports 23 of 72 counties have completed their recounts and Trump’s lead has grown:

The Wisconsin Elections Commission says it is confident that voting machines in St. Croix County that had broken warranty seals are accurately tabulating and reporting results there.

The Commission issued a statement Tuesday, explaining why some of the voting machines in St. Croix County in northern Wisconsin had broken seals. It included an affidavit from a technician saying he broke them to service modems on the scanners. Commission officials said they’re confident the machines are accurately tabulating and reporting results.

The Commission said Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s campaign had representatives on site who verified the accuracy of ballots fed through the machines.

St. Croix County reported after the recount that President-elect Donald Trump gained one vote over Hillary Clinton.

Statewide, President-elect Trump has added to his victory total in Wisconsin as the recount continues.

President-elect Trump had picked up 143 votes on Hillary Clinton based on counties that reported by Tuesday that they had completed the recount. President-elect Trump beat Clinton by about 22,000 votes in the state.

The recount in Wisconsin began on December 1st — and 23 out of the 72 counties were done as of December 6th.

In those counties, President-elect Trump has picked up 105 votes and Clinton has dropped 41 votes.

55% complete after 6 days! Sounds like they’re making cheese.

This is where they run in the major Democratic districts last and the total magically swings into Hillary’s corner.

Still no word from Dane County (Madison) or Milwaukee County?

I wonder how many hungry people the cost of doctor Stein’s effort would feed. Oh… that’s right, we don’t care about hungry people because (you know) they didn’t go to the right schools and lots of them are, ummmm, not the right color.


Dane and Milwaukee Counties

55% after 6 days. Are they counting each county consecutively? Why is it taking so long? Let each county count their votes and then report to the state. Get it all done in a day or two.

What a farce!
