This makes little to no sense…yes the biggest number of Biden votes came from Milwaukee and Dane counties…but yes…they are Democratic strong holds and always go Democratic. The Trump campaign needs to flip 11,000 votes to possibly negate Biden’s lead of nearly 21,000 votes. I don’t think that’s likely to happen here.
My biggest consternation is the number of formerly reputable politicians, attorneys, and jurists are willing to buy into the voter irregularities and voter fraud stories…when those stories are made from whole cloth in the president’s fantasy world. But as he would say: it is what it is.
President Donald Trump will seek a recount of ballots in liberal Dane and Milwaukee counties, hoping to overturn the election results in his favor despite voters there choosing President-Elect Joe Biden by wide margins.
Former Dane County Judge Jim Troupis is representing the campaign in its recount effort.
“We will not stop fighting for transparency and integrity in our electoral process to ensure that all Americans can trust the results of a free and fair election in Wisconsin and across the country,” Troupis said in a statement.
In Milwaukee County, Biden beat Trump 317,270 votes to 134,357, according to the final canvass. The county canvass added 19 votes for Biden and 2 for Trump compared to the unofficial results.
In Dane County, Biden beat Trump 260,185 to 78,800. The county canvass added 28 votes for Biden and 11 vote Trump.
Together, Dane and Milwaukee counties represent more than third (35%) of Biden’s statewide vote.
So yes, the president who doesn’t believe in science also can’t do math.
If I were going at this, and I wouldn’t because I don’t anticipate any strategy that will close a 21,000 vote deficit, I’d go after Waukesha and Ozaukee counties. Even though the president won those areas they showed a strong growth in Democratic voting. If you really think something is ‘rigged’, you look for changes or anomalies, not the same ole same ole.
And has anyone noticed the irony around the Wisconsin Elections Commission? I mean…the state Republicans were gung ho to reform and redesign how elections were run in Wisconsin. So the re-created the WEC and voila…THEY don’t like how it runs elections. Shrug.
