Wisconsin Recount Results Day 7: Trump Leads After 70% Complete

“So far, not including the City of Milwaukee, Clinton/Kaine have gained 82 more votes than Trump/Pence, but still trail,” the Commission said.
That’s because, although errors have been found throughout the state – everything from voters not using proper pens to jammed ballots – they have resulted in both candidates losing and gaining votes. That’s basically cancelled out any gains for either, putting the election results back almost to where they were before the recount. Here is the raw spreadsheet of totals for December 7, Day 7.
Green Party nominee Jill Stein paid $3.5 million in donated money to force the Wisconsin recount, which Trump has labeled a “scam.” Hillary Clinton’s campaign has said it was participating. Stein is also seeking recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania; both are bogged down in legal battles, although the Michigan recount did start on December 5
Here’s what the Wisconsin Election Commission is reporting on Day 7 of the recount, in its own words:
-“After Tuesday, December 6, approximately 70 percent of the 2.97 million votes cast in the election have been recounted, and all Wisconsin counties remain on track to finish their work by the deadline of 8 p.m. Monday, December 12.”
