Wisconsin Recount Results Day 11: What’s Left to Count

The Wisconsin Election Commission’s day 11 spreadsheet from December 11 shows that almost every ward in the state had now been fully recounted – except for the Democratic stronghold City of Milwaukee and a few others.

However, on December 12, the Election Commission said all counties were done:

The Commission said the final results would be certified and released at 3 p.m. December 12. No spreadsheet has been publicly released yet containing full Milwaukee returns.

(Update: Milwaukee returns were submitted on December 12, and final returns were certified, declaring Donald Trump the Wisconsin victor. When all was said and done, Trump’s margin actually grew. Read more here.)

Hillary Clinton has only reduced Donald Trump’s lead by several dozen votes in the days of recounting, nowhere near enough to alter the election. Trump won Wisconsin by more than 22,000 votes. Green Party nominee Jill Stein paid at least $3.5 million in donated money for the recount.

The Milwaukee County Clerk told the news media the recount was completed on Thursday, December 8, and only minor changes were found. However, the most recent spreadsheets still do not contain the full returns. That leaves Milwaukee as pretty much the last lingering mystery before Wisconsin can shut the lid on the 2016 presidential recount.

The Milwaukee County Clerk told Heavy on December 12, “Milwaukee County has finished recounting all ballots and is in the process of certifying the results to the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC). This will be complete by the deadline of 8:00 PM today and results should be posted on the WEC web page thereafter.” On December 9, the spokesman for the Election Commission told Heavy, “Milwaukee may be done recounting, but they haven’t yet submitted their totals to us. When they do, we’ll mark them as complete.”

The December 11 update reads, “Numbers for the City of Milwaukee do not include absentee ballots, which have not yet been recounted. Milwaukee counts its absentee ballots centrally (not at the polling place) on Election Night. When those absentee ballots have been counted the numbers will be updated.”

Here’s a portion of the day 11 spreadsheet to show how city wards appear. They show deficits for each candidate because absentee ballots have not been reported to the state yet:

Some of the City of Milwaukee wards as they appeared on December 11 in the Wisconsin Election Commission spreadsheet for day 11. They are still showing deficits for each candidate because absentee ballots are not yet included in the tallies.

Some on Twitter were taking note of the missing Milwaukee returns.

The state set a deadline of December 12 for counties to complete their recounts. The state must certify its returns by December 13. The Electoral College meets on December 19.

The December 11 spreadsheet shows that, in addition to the City of Milwaukee, only these precincts had not yet been reported to the state:

Clark County – ward 8 in the City of Stanley. (But this ward only listed 2 votes during the original count, one for Trump and one for Clinton).

Dane County – 5 wards in the City of Verona. (Trump received 371 and 563 votes in the first precinct and Clinton received 801 and 1,455 votes.) Dane County told local news stations that it had completed its recount, and the Election Commission retweeted one of those accounts. However, these wards are still not listed in the day 11 spreadsheet.

Milwaukee County – wards 3-9 in the City of Glendale. (Trump received 429 votes and Clinton received 852 in these wards in the original count).

City of Milwaukee – still not updated with absentee ballots, according to the Election Commission. The returns appear in the spreadsheet but they still show deficits because they are not complete.

Monroe County – City of Sparta and City of Tomah wards. (In City of Sparta wards 7-12, Trump had 700 votes and Clinton had 616 in the original count. In City of Tomah wards 1-6, Trump had 627 votes and Clinton had 465. In City of Tomah Wards 7-11, Trump had 759 votes and Clinton had 517. In City of Tomah wards 12-16, 18, Trump had 691 votes and Clinton had 507 in the original count.)

Portage County – Town of Carson. (Trump had 493 and Clinton had 292 votes in the original count.)

Racine County – City of Racine ward 36 (Trump had 164 votes and Clinton had 415 in the original vote count.)

Dane County completed its recounted returns late on Saturday evening, said WKOW-TV. WKOW-TV said only a few changes occurred in Dane, with Clinton gaining 172 votes.

Here is another way to look at it:

The most recent totals released by the Election Commission showed the following net gains and losses:

The net change was +1,442 votes: Trump/Pence +628, Clinton/Kaine +653, Castle/Bradley +17, Johnson/Weld +76, Stein/Baraka +68, Moorehead/Lilly +14, and De la Fuente/Steinberg -14.

However, those are not the final returns. As noted, those are expected to be released at 3 p.m. December 12.

  1. Even though they finished on Thursday, Milwaukee county still hasn’t turned in their numbers. Seems the State of Wisconsin must step in and take back the control and responsibility for elections in Milwaukee. Why is Milwaukee the only county in the state that has it’s own election commission in the first place? It is like having the rogue state of California inside of Wisconsin. Come on, Wisco GOP, you’re in control, lets fix this mess so we don’t have to put up with these shenanigans.

        • You mean the “Crooked Hillary” that’s been investigated umpteen times over a 20 year period, including 11 straight hours testifying to Congress, at the taxpayers’ cost of tens of millions of dollars, only to never be arrested or convicted of any crime . . . is that the Crooked Hillary you mean??? Re: Wisconsin re-count, with Trump still ahead in the vote, seems to me if she was so crooked, she’d have a different outcome, especially given that nationwide, 3 million more people voted for her instead of Donald?

          You don’t have to like Hillary; but don’t let your hate continue to blind you.

      • I see that all the other candidates vote totals in Dane County remained basically the same, while Hillary gained 172 votes. This is a glaring statistical irregularity that demands a closer inspection to alleviate all suspicion of fraud, and guarantee our elections are inherently honest and trustworthy. I demand a recount of the recount! Please send me money to fund this just and righteous cause!

    • Milwaukee County is the leader in black welfare recipients, robbery, killings ect,
      they are Obama people, no work but pay my way in everything

      • Now that you’ve identified yourself as a racist John, you’ve lost all credibility . . . the only people interested in what you have to say are fellow racists. Go get your white sheets out of the cleaners.

        • oooh the R word has been been used, we must all now crawl underground and never post anything,
          sorry that has been overused and no longer works. Either make a logical argument against John or shut the helll up.

          • The only people it doesn’t work with is is racist themselves. The rest of us still have some decency. You should get some. Although, it does take character and integrity to acquire it!

          • When John makes a logical argument, I will, lew. Additionally, your unfamiliarity with the Constitution and its First Amendment only confirms your lack of education.

  2. So the City of Milwaukee has been done counting since Thursday evening and here it is Sunday without a completed report.

    They must be taking a lot of time word-smithing the discrepancy report to cover up their fraud.

      • Mark 88% for their candidate of course.

        I wonder what the explanation will be for where they found them and why it was just in the nick of time. And how they will rationalize their validity.

      • Because . . . actually, I’m far more worried about the hacking and how they will use what they found to blackmail American policy, Trump’s billion-dollar loans from foreign banks; especially Chinese banks. And he’s gonna’ make American great again? LMAO!

  3. No just waiting for Jill to show up in Wisconsin in time to show that thanks to her and Soros they have uncovered 22301 absentee votes found in Milwaukee…..Sigh when will this END

  4. Look at the city of Milwaukee ward 34 count. Original vote count was 8 votes for Trump and 795 for Clinton. Now showing 198 for Trump and 580 for Clinton. Even if the absentee ballots are not reported yet how do you explain an additional 190 votes for Trump? I think Milwaukee will finally be forced to show the suspected voter fraud that takes place in Democratic strongholds.

    • maybe there is nothing more to report Ms Mcbride has done an outstanding job she continues to simply report facts as a good journalist does.

  5. The votes will magically appear overnight when NO ONE but a Hilary/Soros I mean democrat official will say look here they were here all along BUT nobody saw them for they were in a Russian truck out back!!!THank God for Jillary Soros….

    • John, I would think you would be dancing in the street with the recount . . . all we heard about before the election from Trump and his followers that the election was rigged . . . well, you’re getting the recount you always wanted to verify the results . . . besides, comparatively, this is nothing to worry about . . . instead, worry about how the Russians are going to blackmail Trump and the country with all they found out when they hacked the Republican National Committee, and gosh knows what about Republicans themselves . . . whatever it is, they will extract a long, protracted, expensive ransom . . . similar to the Chinese for the hundreds of millions of dollars that Trump owes its banks . . . possibly Trump and his billionaire Cabinet appointees can broker a deal in their favor . . . but the rest of us working folk will continue to get the shaft . . .

      • The two accounts that were hacked RNC were from two accounts used years ago. Other than that the RNC was not hacked so therefore the Russians nor anyone else has anything to bribe Trump with. UGh.

      • You are really a nut job,with a weak mind and not capable of free thinking, sorry for you! All my 65 years the Russians did it. Government has been fear mongered us with that scenario as long as I can remember . Get a life, or go put your tin foil hat on and set in your safe room!

      • If someone tries to rip you off do you go back to give them another chance?

        DNC has operatives that have admitted on undercover video that they have been rigging elections for decades. So would be stupid of a winner to support recounts to give them another shot at stealing the election. If given an opportunity to do so they will certainly try. It’s who they are and we all know it.

        • How ’bout a link to that undercover video . . . I’m sure you can guarantee it hasn’t been hacked either, correct? BTW, who are “they?” Anybody who doesn’t bend over for Trump?

    • Doesn’t matter, the State House and Senate can vote to send the 10 Electors in anyway, it happened in Florida when they didn’t finish, SCOTUS ruled it goes back to the certified Count, Ruth Bader said NO State should be denied to be represented. State can just re-certify the orig counts.

    • Probably right Wisconsin has 10 Electoral votes, Texas has 38 and Electoral College not voting for Trump in fact 8 or 9 of them not giving Trump their electoral votes looks like neither Trump or Clinton will get 270 votes on 12/19?

  6. THE POLITICS OF TRUE PLURALITIES
    .
    Millions have “tentatively lost” the yet to be completed Election, because the Electoral College is in systemic breach of a DIRECT ELECTION, and ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE!… and because some OLIGARCHS have decided many years ago to “R-I-G” the outcome of a U.S. Federal Election, by instituting a mechanism to undermine a DEMOCRATIC PLURALITY! And that process… as this site has revealed!… is currently in the midst of a V-E-R-Y R-E-A-L F-I-R-E-S-T-O-R-M of “judicious judicial judicare”!
    .
    However!… however DIABOLIC one might perceive the present Electoral College to be to the “Principals of Democracy”, none of this compares to the DIABOLIC nature inhere within “democracies (so-called!)” which a-c-t-u-a-l-l-y a-d-h-e-r-e to DIRECT ELECTIONS (so-called!), and which have adopted a “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE (so-called!)” system to elect Candidates into Office! And I’ll demonstrate this, by revealing the I-N-S-A-N-I-T-Y that was– and is!– the Brexit vs Bremain referendum!
    .
    How is it “DEMOCRATIC”– e.g.!– when the Brexit Referendum “win” of Thursday, June 23rd, 2016, was “won” W-I-T-H-O-U-T the E-S-S-E-N-T-I-A-L M-I-N-I-M-U-M of 50+% of the T-O-T-A-L N-U-M-B-E-R of ELIGIBLE BRITISH VOTERS’ VOTES?… AND!… NOT JUST, BY WAY OF A MAJORITY OF THOSE WHO’VE DECIDED TO CAST A VOTE! In other words, how can L-E-S-S than the E-S-S-E-N-T-I-A-L M-I-N-I-M-U-M of 50+% of the T-O-T-A-L N-U-M-B-E-R of eligible British voters’ votes, constitute a “D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C P-L-U-R-A-L-I-T-Y”? It is– de facto!– I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E (i.e., without God!)! And thus, the Brexit vote is a further example of a “P-S-E-U-D-O-D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C P-S-E-U-D-O-P-L-U-R-A-L-I-T-Y” “winning the day”!
    .
    To compare the Brexit Referendum to an election of a Candidate within a Electoral District… if fifty thousand eligible voters decide not to vote in a District that is composed/ comprised of one hundred thousand eligible voters… and five Candidates are running!… the math would suggest, that no Candidate could possibly obtain a “D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C P-L-U-R-A-L-I-T-Y” from the remaining fifty thousand eligible voters who have cast a vote! Unless!… and of course!… A H-I-J-A-C-K-E-D, AND E-L-I-T-I-S-T P-O-L-I-T-I-C-A-L P-R-O-C-E-S-S SIMPLY MARGINALIZES THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SHOWN UP TO VOTE; AND, THEN, DICTATES THAT THEIR “NO SHOW”/ ABSENCE, CANNOT– AND SHOULD NOT!– BE HELD “B-I-N-D-I-N-G” IN SOME FASHION, OR FORM (AND SOME “NO SHOWS” ARE AS SUCH, DUE TO DISABILITY, AND/ OR INFIRMITY!… NOT TO MENTION, THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN SYSTEMICALLY AND SYSTEMATICALLY DISCRIMINATED AGAINST, DUE TO THEIR Y-O-U-T-H!)! FOR!… OUT OF SIGHT, IS OUT OF MIND!
    .
    Simply put!… and to return to the Brexit Referendum!… the said total of 17,410,742. “winning” “pro Brexit” British voters, plus the said total of 16,141,242. “losing” “pro Bremain” eligible British voters, who– together!– showed up at the “Referendum ballot boxes (i.e., 33,551,984 eligible British voters!)”, are in contrast to the ACTUAL TOTAL of 46,499,537 eligible British voters (see Google result, Electoral Commission | Provisional electorate figures published!… AND, LET ALONE, THE EVEN HIGHER ACTUAL TOTAL NUMBER OF ELIGIBLE VOTERS’ VOTES TO BE HAD, IF MANY OF THE DISABLED/ INFIRMED BRITISH CITIZENS WERE “ACCOMMODATED”!… AND!… IF MANY BRITISH YOUTH WEREN’T THE TARGETS OF “P-O-L-I-T-I-C-A-L A-N-D S-O-C-I-A-L P-A-T-E-R-N-A-L-I-S-T-I-C A-G-E-I-S-M”!)!… and reveals a deficit of 12,947,553. of the ACTUAL TOTAL NUMBER of eligible British voters, and a deficit of 5,839,027. eligible British voters for even a “B-A-R-E M-I-N-I-M-U-M M-A-J-O-R-I-T-Y W-I-N (i.e., 46,499,537. ÷ 2 = 23,249,768.5… + .5 = [23,249,769.] – 17,410,742. = 5,839,027.!)”! AND THEREFORE, THE COMBINED “WINNERS” AND “LOSERS” TALLY OF ELIGIBLE VOTERS, S-H-O-U-L-D N-O-T B-E M-A-D-E S-Y-N-O-N-Y-M-O-U-S W-I-T-H T-H-E A-C-T-U-A-L T-O-T-A-L- N-U-M-B-E-R O-F E-L-I-G-I-B-L-E B-R-I-T-I-S-H V-O-T-E-R-S/ V-O-T-E-S!… AND!… THE “WINNING TALLY”, S-H-O-U-L-D N-O-T B-E M-A-D-E S-Y-N-O-N-Y-M-O-U-S W-I-T-H T-H-E “M-A-J-O-R-I-T-Y W-I-L-L” O-F T-H-E E-L-I-G-I-B-L-E V-O-T-E-R-S O-F B-R-I-T-A-I-N! AND!… THEREFORE!… THE “WINNING TALLY” OF ELIGIBLE BRITISH VOTERS– AT LEAST!– SHOULD BE MET WITH A C-O-N-S-T-I-T-U-T-I-O-N-A-L (AND TORT!) C-H-A-L-L-E-N-G-E (TO START!) FOR THE F-L-A-G-R-A-N-T B-R-E-A-C-H OF THE “L-E-G-I-T-I-M-A-T-E” “P-R-I-N-C-I-P-L-E-S O-F D-E-M-O-C-R-A-C-Y (I.E., AND E.G., IN THE F-A-I-L-U-R-E OF THE BREXIT REFERENDUM RESULT TOTAL, TO ACHIEVE EVEN A B-A-R-E M-I-N-I-M-U-M M-A-J-O-R-I-T-Y T-A-L-L-Y, FOR A ‘M-A-J-O-R-I-T-Y W-I-N’!)”!
    .
    And so!… the Brexit “win”… like the “wins” seen so often in our PSEUDODEMOCRATIC PSEUDOELECTIONS (AND EVEN IN ELECTIONS WHEREIN “PLURALITY WINS”– E.G., IN AMERICA!– MIGHT BE FAVORED OVER ELECTORAL COLLEGE “WINS”!)!… I-S A S-H-A-M!! And!… it escapes me, why “plurality-driven citizens” from respective “democracies (so-called!)” from around the world, haven’t challenged these scurrilous, and shameful “F-A-U-X P-U-B-L-I-C R-E-F-E-R-E-N-D-A”!… AND PSEUDOELECTIONS!… AND!… haven’t brought civil proceedings against any and all institutions, which have allowed these G-L-O-B-A-L F-A-R-C-E-S to continue! And thus… re the Brexit Referendum result!… it’s my contention, that the Brexit Referendum is defeatable, due to it’s inherent S-Y-S-T-E-M-I-C V-I-O-L-A-T-I-O-N of the “L-E-G-I-T-I-M-A-T-E” “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”!
    .
    This horrendous situation involving our PSEUDODEMOCRATIC PSEUDOELECTIONS, has resulted in “winning Candidates” winning (if, indeed, Pluralities are recognized!) with as little as 1/5th of the total number of eligible voters’ votes!… AND!… THEN DARING, TO CALL SUCH RESPECTIVE “WINS”, D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C! A-N-D W-O-R-S-E!… and in the case of the Brexit Referendum result (AND “PSEUDOWIN”!)!… such a “W-I-N” could– POTENTIALLY!– C-O-M-P-R-O-M-I-Z-E T-H-E S-E-C-U-R-I-T-Y O-F A-N E-N-T-I-R-E N-A-T-I-O-N! And so!… it’s no wonder why so many citizens within our respective “democracies (so-called!)” hate the elections process!… and!… hate Public Referenda!
    .
    And!… to add Elections insult to Elections injury, there are “Parties” within countries… and again, composed of “winning Candidates” who have “won” with L-E-S-S than the E-S-S-E-N-T-I-A-L M-I-N-I-M-U-M needed for a “D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C P-L-U-R-A-L-I-T-Y”!… whose leadership cannot be chosen D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C-A-L-L-Y by the PEOPLE (e.g., in Canada!)!… and O-N-L-Y, by the Party (although, this is not to detract from the serious failings of the Elections Process in America, in the selection of America’s President!)! And further, rather than have the brightest!… the best!… “winning Candidates” from all across a country– and, from across a legislature’s floor!– forming Executive Cabinets (and in Canada– e.g.– composed of Ministers of Federal Departments, or Provincial Ministries!)!… A-N-D T-H-R-O-U-G-H A N-O-N P-A-R-T-Y_B-A-S-E-D L-E-G-I-S-L-A-T-U-R-E O-R P-A-R-L-I-A-M-E-N-T (and something, incidentally, that municipalities have been doing for generations!… A-N-D, W-O-R-L-D-W-I-D-E)!… our current “PARTY-BASED DEMOCRACIES” have chosen, instead– A-N-D V-I-R-T-U-A-L-L-Y!– GANGS, CLIQUES, AND “P-S-E-U-D-O-S-O-C-I-A-L I-N-T-E-R-E-S-T-S”, TO ACT AS “GO-BETWEENS” FOR PARTY-BASED “OLIGARCHIC BACKROOM BOYZ”!
    .
    But!… if all of this wasn’t bad enough, there’s no “NONE OF THE ABOVE” option on millions of voters’ ballots (AND “B-I-N-D-I-N-G”!… AS A PREREQUISITE!)!… nor, an “AUTOMATIC TRANSLATION” of the “NO SHOWS (i.e., eligible voters who have NOT cast a vote!)” to “B-I-N-D-I-N-G” “NONE OF THE ABOVE BALLOTS (inasmuch, as such ‘NO SHOWS’, can’t be translated as being ‘F-O-R’, any Candidate!)”! (BUT!… PLEASE NOTE!… IF OUR “NO SHOWS” AS SUCH, ARE DUE TO OUR P-O-L-I-T-I-C-A-L A-N-D S-O-C-I-A-L I-N-A-B-I-L-I-T-Y– O-R, U-N-W-I-L-L-I-N-G-N-E-S-S!– TO ADDRESS THE VOTER NEEDS OF OUR DISABLED/ INFIRMED!… AND, OUR YOUTH!… THEN SUCH “INABLED”, OR “UNWILLING”, SHOULD BE “H-E-L-P-E-D” RE THEIR “I-N-A-B-I-L-T-Y”!… OR H-E-L-D T-O A-C-C-O-U-N-T FOR THEIR “U-N-W-I-L-L-I-N-G-N-E-S-S”!) And!… had the “NONE OF THE ABOVE” and the “TRANSLATED NO SHOW” provisions been addressed, many “NO SHOWS” would have shown up to vote (for fear of receiving a MANADATED “BINDING” “AUTOMATIC TRANSLATION”!)! And!… if combined “NO SHOW TRANSLATIONS”, together with directly cast “NONE OF THE ABOVE BALLOTS” were implemented (wherein– TOGETHER!– these OUTNUMBER the votes cast for any respective “running Candidate”!), this combined tally could have meant the introduction of “lottery lists” of Candidates within respective Districts (preselected!… and the members in which, would not be eligible to run as “running Candidates”!)!… from which, our “winners” could have then been chosen! And thereby!… E-F-F-E-C-T-I-N-G F-U-L-L R-E-P-R-E-S-E-N-T-A-T-I-O-N F-O-R E-V-E-R-Y S-I-N-G-L-E E-L-I-G-I-B-L-E V-O-T-E-R, A-N-D V-O-T-E!
    .
    And so… and given the “politcal fair” we’ve received from every major “Party”, I ask you:… Should we be fearful of a “lottery list”, if a TRUE PLURALITY (i.e., with respect to my hypothetic model!) has denied all “running Candidates”?
    .
    All one need ensure in the establishment of a “lottery list”, is the institution of PROPER SECURITY BACKGROUND CHECKS for “listed Candidates”, and the institution of PROPER “LISTED PREQUALIFICATIONS”!
    .
    To return again to Brexit!… to juxtapose the just aforenoted “plurality template” onto Referenda!… and onto the Brexit Referendum, in particular!… if the directly cast “NONE OF THE ABOVE BALLOTS”, combined with the “TRANSLATED NO SHOWS”, OUTWEIGHED the votes cast for either the Brexit or Bremain scenarios, then NEITHER Brexit, nor Bremain, would be– DEMOCRATICALLY!– left on the table! And the MPs of the British Parliament would then be forced to renew their respective individual approaches, and collective approach, re their “arrangement” with the EU!… and, their respective dialogues, and collective dialogue, with the citizens of Britain!
    .
    And given… and in contrast to the abovenoted!… in the light of the process that was implementated for the Brexit Referendum (though, yet to be revealed “officially”!)!… WELL!… you have the makings of a P-O-O-R E-X-C-U-S-E F-O-R A D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C R-E-F-E-R-E-N-D-U-M!… A-N-D A P-O-O-R “R-A-T-I-O-N-A-L B-A-S-I-S” F-O-R T-H-E R-E-D-I-R-E-C-T-I-O-N O-F T-H-E F-U-T-U-R-E C-O-U-R-S-E F-O-R A-N E-N-T-I-R-E C-O-U-N-T-R-Y!!
    .
    And so… and to sum up!… what we have, presently, are “P-S-E-U-D-O-D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C P-L-U-R-A-L-I-T-I-E-S (IF EVEN THESE CAN BE ACHIEVED!… E.G., IN AMERICA!)” IN THE G-U-I-S-E OF “D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C-A-L-L-Y E-L-E-C-T-E-D” CANDIDATES! An intolerable situation!… and deserving of both CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGES, and TORT ACTION! And!… A-N-Y O-T-H-E-R ACCEPTED PLURALITY OTHER THAN A “D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C P-L-U-R-A-L-I-T-Y” ACCEPTED BY A PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATE, AND/ OR BY A PROSPECTIVE VOTER (AND BASED UPON THE “L-E-G-I-T-I-M-A-T-E” “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”, AS AFOREMENTIONED!… AND OTHER, THAN ONE INSTITUTED BY GOD!)!, IS A CANDIDATE, OR VOTER, WHO IS EITHER BLIND TO THE “LEGITIMATE” “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”, OR WHO IS A TRAITOR TO THE “LEGITIMATE” “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”! AND!… WHO IS EITHER BLIND, OR A TRAITOR, TO THE COMMON GOOD OF THE PEOPLE!
    .
    THEREFORE, THE “J-U-S-T ESTABLISHMENT” OF “T-R-U-E DEMOCRATIC PLURALITIES” WITHIN OUR RESPECTIVE REFERENDA, AND ELECTIONS PROCESSES, IS F-U-N-D-A-M-E-N-T-A-L TO THE VERY REALIZATION OF “D-E-M-O-C-R-A-C-Y”!… AND!… WITHOUT WHICH, WE ARE SUBJECT TO MERE OLIGARCHIC WHIM!
    .
    Please!… no emails!

  7. Perhaps the Democrats are waiting to see just how many votes they lost by so they can “find” the right number of votes to overcome the deficit.

  8. John our founding fathers were BRILLIANT they NEVER wanted the union to submit to 1 or 2 POPULOUS states!!!!!!! They wanted ALL and I MEAN ALL to have a say!!! The popular vote ???

    Please!… no emails!

    • No one reads your comments when you go on and on use all caps letters. So if no one reads your comments because of all cap letters your point is lost.

  10. I get a totally different number than reported here. When I go to the excell spreadsheet as reported for day 11, and sum column V (Donald Trump) and sum column W (Hillary), I get a net loss of 45,434 for Hillary, .Ie, she is 45,000 votes worse off than before the recount

  11. Short of some sort of “December Surprise” involving Milwaukee, this doesn’t indicate any evidence of hacking IMO. It’s closer than some other recounts.

  12. Obviously the Dems are busy trying to cook the votes. Today the Dems will have to announce their numbers so short of creating 22,000 fraudulent votes for Hillary the game in Wisconsin will be over.

  13. Elections are very important! They need to Be Honest, Reliable and Verified. Technology can help if the System (hardware and Software) are Reliable and Verified too!! What I mean are: The Electoral system needs to be open (hardware and software) thus, any student in Universities can check if the hardware and Software are Honest! Political Parties and Others Organizations can verified the voting count by plug in their own equipment into the Official Machines. And check up the Reliability of the Voting system! Maybe in Wisconsin can fully report why 10, 20 or 100 vote were discrepant from the total count of the Electronic. But more important is to BETTER the System, today, only check the HONEST of an Election using paper Recount is not good!!! I Bet others States are blocking the re-count!!!

    • basically Republicans are being accused of exactly what you are proposing, the key here is security not open sourcing our voting software.

      plug in their own equipment into the Official Machines. really?

      • Yes, Open sources code and Hardware! Thus any student can verified the Honest and Robustness of the system! Publish papers describing weakness, proposing improvements, and winning Money from the Official Authorities. Even if a Hacker, hack the system and prove that he/she did it, they should be Prize (money)! IF Everything is Secrete means that The Necessary Evil (Federalist Papers) are controlling who are been elected! And I can not forget the CIA FAKE EVIDENCES about Saddan Hussein!!!! Do you know how many Deaths because of it?? Where are the Responsibles??Where are the punishment?? And about plug in Political Party and Others organizations into the Machines, this is very simple. Computers have USB (Universal Serial Bus). Very easy to be design!! and very cheep!! See, in the past Political Parties can watch the paper count of the paper votes. Today, they can not! And I believe in TRUST BUT VERIFIED!!!

  14. Practically every metro area in traditionally Democratic states is structured to allow for illegal voting. Calls for voter specific identification cards is met with cries of “voter suppression” to marginalize the effort to improve the integrity of the process. Mexico has better integrity in their voting because of such rules than the United States of America. The Democrats value the opportunity to cheat over any other consideration. Milwaukee is dragging their feet hoping they can “find” more votes (after they know what is needed). I’d like to see a genuine effort to identify voters who cheat, and their enablers, and see a law mandating so much hard time the cheats will be on Social Security before they’re release dates.

    • “the question is why the delay in the release of the day 12 spreadsheet?”

      Takes time to fill out 30,000 missing ballots that were found at the last moment. ;)

    • “I want to know that with the recount, they also verify that each voter is a legal voter.”

      Nope.

      That might be possible with absentee ballots and provisional ballots (not sure about how those are handled). But ballots cast at the poll location on election day I believe are not reconcilable to a particular person. Once put in the “ballot box” it essentially becomes anonymous. Otherwise political factions would use them to discriminate, coerce, intimidate, etc.

  15. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could certainly be
    one of the most beneficial in its field. Good blog!
