Man it must suck to be Hillary Clinton right now. For the past forty years her entire career has been leading up to her eventual successful campaign for the presidency, and Donald Trump took that away from her. God bless him.
Not only did she lose, she lost while maintaining a lead in the popular vote by two million votes. That’s got to hurt.
And she’s not giving up yet. Hillary Clinton is being urged by a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by Donald Trump, according to New York Magazine. According to them, they had findings showing that in Wisconsin, Clinton received 7 percent fewer votes in counties that relied on electronic-voting machines compared with counties that used optical scanners and paper ballots. Based on this statistical analysis, Clinton may have been denied as many as 30,000 votes; she lost Wisconsin by 27,000.
And guess what? It’s all BS! As Infowars reported:
As pollster Nate Silver (hardly a fan of Trump) points out, the claims are already on thin ice.
The group claims that Clinton received 7 per cent fewer votes in counties that used electronic voting machines in comparison with those that used paper ballots and optical scanners.
But as Silver points out, “Michigan has paper ballots everywhere, so not even sure what claim is being made there.”

Even the media in Michigan isn’t buying it. The Detroit News confirmed that, “Michigan uses paper ballots that are fed into scanning machines not connected to the internet,” eliminating any chance of “hacking”.
So – there goes that excuse.
And by the way, it wouldn’t make a difference anyway. Trump trumped Hillary 306-206, she’d need to garner at least an additional 38 electoral votes to breakeven with Trump.
Honestly, if the system was rigged, and there’s any foul play, the odds that it was in the favor of Hillary Clinton are infinitely higher than it turning out to be in favor of Trump. Good riddance Hillary.
