How Trump's Demand That Wisconsin Counties Do A Recount Is Backfiring


President Donald Trump's campaign spent $3 million on a recount that has already backfired spectacularly. According to Business Insider, the outcome of the general election's recount in one Wisconsin county was that Trump actually lost votes--not gained them. Milwaukee County announced Friday that President-elect Joe Biden made a total net gain of 132 votes out of nearly 460,000 votes cast. The Trump administration spent $3 million to request two recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties. Both have large numbers of Democrat voters. Dane County is expected to announce its recount results on Sunday.

  • Trump Campaign Kicks Off Recount Demand Spree

    The campaign to re-elect President Donald Trump has decided to badger the Badger State for a recount. Business Insider reports the Trump campaign is demanding a recount in Wisconsin, which has ten Electoral College votes. As of November 4th, 98% of the statewide vote is in. Biden has 49.4%, and Trump has 48.8%--a difference of only 20,510 votes. Winning the state is critical to both President Trump and Vice President Joe Biden in their respective paths to victory. Wisconsin does not mandate automatic recounts. However, a candidate can request one if he or she is behind by less than 1% of the vote.
