It’s day seven in the presidential vote recount instigated by failed Green Party presidential candidate, Jill Stein.
As of today, the recount is 70% complete. The deadline to finish is 8:00 PM, December 12.
Clinton has picked up a few votes, but not enough to move the needle one way or another:
(AP) Wisconsin’s presidential recount is more than 70 percent complete, and Democrat Hillary Clinton has gained just 82 votes on President-elect Donald Trump.
Trump won Wisconsin by more than 22,000 votes.
The latest results were reported Wednesday by the Wisconsin Elections Commission. It says all counties remain on track to finish their work by the state-imposed deadline of 8 :00 PM Tuesday.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein is pushing for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
In Wisconsin, 34 of 72 counties have completed their work and the others are all nearing completion. More than 2.1 million votes out of the nearly 3 million cast have been recounted.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “Clinton has picked up 492 votes so far in the recount, but has gained almost no ground since Trump himself gained 410 votes in this new tally and led by 22,177 votes going into the recount.” Stein has picked up a grand total of 60 votes or roughly $58,000 per vote seeing as she forked over $3.5 million for the recount.
Stein’s recount bids in Michigan and Pennsylvania remain imperiled.
