Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 28, 2016

At the end of election night the New York Times reported that Donald Trump had won the state of Wisconsin with a total of 1,409,467 votes, giving him a winning margin of 27,257 votes over Hillary Clinton's total of 1,382,210. These numbers were based on what the individual counties and precincts were reporting that night. But now seventeen days later, based on various Wisconsin precincts revising their own totals, Dave Wasserman of the respected Cook Political Report has updated the totals. Donald Trump now has 1,404,536 total votes in Wisconsin, while Hillary Clinton now has 1,382,011 total votes. In other words, a total of 4,931 votes were reported for Trump on election night that never existed.

In contrast Hillary Clinton has gone from 1,382,210 votes down to 1,382,011 votes, a difference of less than two hundred votes. Wisconsin essentially had Clinton's vote total correct all along, but is now acknowledging that nearly five thousand of the supposed votes for Trump simply never existed. Where did these votes come from? Who originally padded his numbers and how?

Of course, 4931 imaginary votes just happened to be added to the totals Wisconsin released to the world on election night because a few of their beleaguered election officials were so exhausted they couldn't work their calculators correctly and all their mistakes just happened to benefit Donald Trump and are completely innocent. Trust them on that they say.

And people wonder why there's going to be a recount, sheesh.

After three precincts in one county were caught reporting gibberish vote totals that were numerically impossible, they responded by drastically reducing their totals for Donald Trump. Since that time, other precincts have done the same, and now nearly five thousand "Trump votes" have been taken off the board across Wisconsin. And now Wisconsin officials are offering increasingly absurd excuses to try to explain it all away.

During this same time Hillary Clinton's vote total in the state has shifted by fewer than two hundred votes, making clear that this was not an equal problem for both candidates. Rather, various Wisconsin precincts simply padded Donald Trump's vote totals by the thousands. So how are Wisconsin officials explaining this remarkably suspicious anomaly? One county is blaming it on an arithmetic error, which is an unlikely explanation, considering that the same math error would have needed to happen for the same candidate three different times. But that's not even the strangest excuse officials have come up with.

As the number of precincts now voluntarily taking their phony Donald Trump votes off the board has increased over the past week, and more inquiries have been made, one member of the Wisconsin Elections Commission tried to blame a modem error for the supposed extra Trump votes. This would suggest that not only are precincts using dial-up technology from the nineties, one of the obsolete modems somehow decided to vote for Trump a few thousand times. Heading into the Wisconsin recount, the plot gets stranger. Bill Palmer

Nothing to see here folks, move on, move on.

"Some people took to social media after finding discrepancies in some Outagamie County election results. In four out of almost a hundred wards, the number of votes cast in the presidential race were greater than the number of ballots voted, that's according to unofficial election results."

It does seem odd that it took folks on social media to point out the discrepancy. Even if they were too tired to count straight on election night, you would think those election officials would have taken another peek at the numbers the next day and noticed the problem themselves.

And it does seem rather coincidental that all the major errors thus far uncovered all favor Trump. Maybe the Clinton padding of then numbers will be discovered during the full recount.

So does this mean lefties now believe in voter fraud? Welcome to the party, pal.

Oh, my. Donald Trump may not have carried Wisconsin at all, in Reality.

Damn thee Reality, and a pox be upon thee!

I just read this someplace else. Trump claims there was massive voter fraud, but he doesn't want a recount. Let that sink in for just a minute.

My man's point was that Donald simply cares about winning, not how he won. It's exactly who he is. Oh, he's bitching about those recounts now underway.

Because they'll find proof to his allegations of wide-spread election fraud? Donald wants to be seen as a genius in all things, but never give up anything he thinks is his.

#8 - Trump and his supporters that are arguing against the recount don't give a rats a__ about making america great, they only care about winning and being in power. If you truly believed that election was rigged, then getting the truth out about it should be priority one. That is how you start to drain the swamp. Something that donald and his supporters care about less every day it would seem.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that they've always been the swamp themselves.

Just like in magic, it's called misdirection, something abundant from certain posters on these threads.

"Not Accepting Election Results is ‘Horrifying'"

Clearly, with nearly 5000 votes disappearing upon the mere announcement of a recount, the results aren't in yet.

They should recount New Hampshire, Clinton lost a couple votes on the official numbers versus the preliminary numbers. Could be voter fraud, have to be sure!

The disappearance of 5,000 votes is likely a function of the canvasing process.

While I would welcome Wisconsin to swing the electoral votes to the Democratic candidate in the recount, the possibility of that happening is slim.

Please keep the evidence in context: These 5000 votes were only found in one race, in favor of one candidate. There were no errors this large found for any other candidate so far. Hillary's total has dropped by 199 since election night, Trump's 4931 and counting, a 24:1 ratio. Actual reported votes, not theories nor allegations, but verified official vote total changes.

Isn't the common sense response to ask why these are happening and to make sure however these "mistakes" happened that they will not happen in this manner again in future elections?

But those non existent voters had the proper ID, so....

Or did they? I think I've got a new track here....

Nearly 5000 Wisconsin Votes Tabulated and Removed For Voters Without Legal ID or Registration!

Maybe that will get someone's attention.
