Today Hilary Clinton’s lead in popular votes over Donald Trump exceeds two million—
With two million not yet counted in heavily democratic states the lead will continue to broaden.
The electoral votes however are unchanged, and unfortunately those determine who the president will be.
No need to lecture me on the electoral college…I get it. I wholly disagree with the idea that 1 vote from Wyoming should be worth 3.5 votes in California. I think it’s unjust, which is why I signed a petition urging congress to abolish it. I know…not another petition.
There are countless petitions pertaining to Donald Trump floating around the internet these days. Some are linked to twitter and some to Facebook, and I’ve gotten a few requests to sign via email.
The most recent petition I have signed is an appeal to Hillary Clinton asking her to exercise her right as a candidate to request a recount.
J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, suggests a recount as a safeguard against hacking.
Apparently there is some question regarding the results of the vote in the key states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The numbers show a dip averaging 7% in votes cast for Clinton electronically vs. those ballots which were optically scanned. There could be many reasons for that dip, but the disparity merits enough consideration.
Deadlines to file a revote request are looming. Clinton’s ability to challenge the vote is slipping away…
But wait… it’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Jill Stein, Green Party candidate to the rescue! She just announced she is raising funds to pay for vote recounts in the state’s of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Any candidate on the ballot is entitled to file a request for a recount, but they must share in the costs. Jill Stein needs two million dollars in time to meet the three state’s deadlines, the first of which is Friday.
So keep the faith anti-Trump voters. There is still a tiny glimmer of hope.
