  • Trump Presidency

    The campaigns are over. The people have voted, the states have finally all been called and Trump is the President Elect.

    The numbers are in: Trump wins Michigan by 10,704
    Kathleen Gray , Detroit Free Press Lansing Bureau 1:45 p.m. EST November 25, 2016

    In the closest race for president in Michigan's history, Republican Donald Trump is hanging on to a 10,704-vote win over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

    The Michigan Secretary of State posted results Wednesday that were submitted by the state's 83 county clerks on Tuesday after the votes were reviewed and certified by each county.

    Before that compiled count, Trump held a 13,107-vote lead over Clinton. But after each county certified its results, the lead shrunk to 10,704, with the biggest chunk coming from Wayne County, which showed that Clinton had gotten 565 more votes than originally tallied by the county.

    The state's Board of Canvassers will officially certify the results on Nov. 28. The electoral college in all the states, including Michigan's 16 electors, will cast their votes on Dec. 19.

    Clinton's popular vote lead passes the 2 million mark
    David M Jackson , USA TODAY 7:21 p.m. EST November 23, 2016

    Hillary Clinton's margin in the popular vote against President-elect Donald Trump has surpassed 2 million, furthering the record for a candidate who lost in the Electoral College.

    Thanks to votes still being counted in California and other western areas, Clinton's vote advantage hit the 2 million mark on Wednesday morning, according to Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report.

    As of mid-day Wednesday, Wasserman's spread sheet had Clinton at 64,225,863 votes to Trump's 62,210,612.

    Much of that lead was generated by California, where Clinton had 3.7 million more votes than Trump in the last totals reported Tuesday evening.

    The Democratic vote was not distributed well enough across the country, however; Trump carried most of the states and prevailed in the Electoral College.

      Wisconsin agrees to statewide recount in presidential race | Reuters
      By Susan Heavey | WASHINGTON


      Wisconsin's election board agreed on Friday to conduct a statewide recount of votes cast in the presidential race, as requested by a Green Party candidate seeking similar reviews in two other states where Donald Trump scored narrow wins.

      The recount process, including an examination by hand of the nearly 3 million ballots tabulated in Wisconsin, is expected to begin late next week after Green Party candidate Jill Stein's campaign has paid the required fee, the Elections Commission said.

      The state faces a Dec. 13 federal deadline to complete the recount, which may require canvassers in Wisconsin's 72 counties to work evenings and weekends to finish the job in time, according to the commission.

      The recount fee has yet to be determined, the agency said in a statement on its website. Stein said in a Facebook message on Friday that the sum was expected to run to about $1.1 million.

      She said she has raised at least $5 million from donors since launching her drive on Wednesday for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania - three battleground states where Republican Trump edged out Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by relatively thin margins.

      Stein has said her goal is to raise $7 million to cover all fees and legal costs.

      Her effort may have given a ray of hope to dispirited Clinton supporters, but the chance of overturning the overall result of the Nov. 8 election is considered very slim, even if all three states go along with the recount.

      ...

      Although Trump won narrowly in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, the margins make it highly unlikely any recounts would end up giving Clinton a win in all three states, which would be needed for the overall election result to change. Trump beat Clinton in Pennsylvania by 70,010 votes, in Michigan by 10,704 votes and in Wisconsin by 27,257 votes.

      The presidential race is decided by the Electoral College, based on a tally of wins from the state-by-state contests, rather than by the popular national vote. The Electoral College results are expected to be finalized on Dec. 19.

      Trump surpassed the 270 electoral votes needed to win, although Clinton will have won the national popular vote by more than 2 million ballots once final tallies are in.

                        Anyone see the two responses by Obama and Trump regarding Castro's death? Obama was a fucking wet noodle. Trudeau was even worse. Trump was the only one to mention what a scummy piece of shit Castro was, with is firing squads and human rights violations. The left still wonders why Trump won

                            Yeah, people white washing Fidel Castro (and guys like Che Guevara over the years, too) really bothers me. Anyone who has known a Cuban immigrant knows that his reign of terror on that island is nothing to applaud on any level. For some reason, the far left is obsessed with turning these horrible human beings into sympathetic causes while taking people like Thomas Jefferson and saying "he wasn't great, he was evil because he owned slaves." Blows my goddamn mind.
