Recount efforts have been implemented in three battleground states since the election of Donald J. Trump. Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, states that are usually blue for the Democrat Party, shockingly supported Trump on the night of the election. Green Party leader, Jill Stein has now called for a recount and has raised enough money for the three states to recount the polling numbers.

Stein’s reasons for wanting a recount are also backed by Hillary Clinton, claiming Russian involvement in hacking the machines. The polling machines are not wifi connected, making this reason a flimsy excuse for the need of a recount.

Trump’s lead in the three states being reviewed is overwhelming. Hillary Clinton lost by 22,177 votes in Wisconsin, 70,638 in Pennsylvania and 10,704 in Michigan. The probability in finding the votes needed to flip the state is slim. It’s in fact the largest margin to overcome for Hillary in any recount conducted in our history. Large amounts of tampering and hacking would have to have happened in order to even come close. There has been no evidence of such polling fraud.

Hillary Clinton supports the recount, but has not contributed money. Because Mrs. Clinton had conceded, many people question her support in the recounts. Mr. Trump has posted on Twitter his own concerns about the vote, and stating,“Nothing will change.”
