Day 5 of the Wisconsin recount continued the pattern on previous days, as Donald Trump extended his Election Day lead over Hillary Clinton by a couple dozen votes.

Update: You can now get day 6 results here. They show that it’s basically a wash so far.

Trump leads Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes. So far, data from the Wisconsin recount as of December 5 shows that little is changing. The major candidates have each gained a smattering of votes in municipalities around the state as a variety of errors are found, but nothing has changed in significant enough numbers to upend the election. Not even close. Trump and Clinton have also each lost votes in communities throughout the state, basically making any gains and losses a wash.

Here are the specific totals:

Day 5 Totals

Trump has lost 302 votes.
Trump has gained 386 votes.
Trump net vote gain by Day 5: 84 votes

Clinton has lost 293 votes.
Clinton has gained 351 votes.
Clinton net vote gain by Day 5: 58 votes

Trump total net gain: 26 votes

The Wisconsin Election Commission posts daily recount results. Wisconsin has until December 13 to complete the recount. The Day 5 spreadsheet shows that many counties, including populous ones, are nowhere near completing their recounts. The Electoral College meets on December 19. The Day 5 results contain all of the previous days’ tallies also. Green Party candidate Jill Stein paid $3.5 million for the Wisconsin recount, alleging unproven fraud. Hillary Clinton has joined in the recount, and Donald Trump has labeled it a scam. Stein is also pursuing recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan. The Michigan recount started December 5, and she is suing to force a Pennsylvania recount in federal court.

The Commission spreadsheet does not tally the recount results but rather simply lists them by municipality, contrasting them with the original returns. Heavy went through the spreadsheet and tabulated the data submitted so far for each municipality by county for both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

You can find the raw data here. The totals do not yet include the City of Milwaukee. That is because, although the Day 5 spreadsheet shows large deficits for both candidates for City of Milwaukee wards, absentee ballots have not been included yet in the totals, so they are extremely misleading. It is not yet possible to tell how many votes Clinton and Trump lost in the City of Milwaukee wards.

For Day 5, the Commission noted the following “explanations provide by clerks for differences in numbers between canvass and the recount:”

Milwaukee County: We are currently awaiting clarification regarding the recount totals for Town of Hales Corners Wards 7-9.

Outagamie County: Addition of 1 vote to Day 5’s City of Appleton Ward 41 totals. A Ward 41 ballot was found with ballots for Ward 38 during the recount.

Ozaukee County: Increase of 29 votes in Village of Newburg Ward 3 due to a typo in original canvas results for Trump/Pence numbers.

Waukesha County: An addition of 1 vote to Day 5’s Town of Delafield Wards 1,2,5,6 totals. Corrected to show 1 additional vote for Trump/Pence.”

Here are the specific day 5 county-by-county recount net gains and losses:

I would recommend •••➤➤➤www.bit.do/jobs2017 to anyone who is looking to earn some money online but is confused and not sure where to start.
