Wisconsin's presidential recount is finding more votes for both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, but not enough Clinton votes for her to significantly cut into Trump's 27,000 vote margin according to figures from the Wisconsin Elections Board tallied through Monday.
70% Of Vote Recounted In Wisconsin Through Tuesday, But Milwaukee Absentee Ballots Still Not In Tally
Wisconsin’s presidential recount is drawing to a close, but it’s hard to tell what is happening in the state’s most populous city because absentee ballots have not been recounted. Milwaukee counts and recounts its absentee ballots after it counts the votes cast on election day. Until those absentee votes are added into the totals it is hard to judge if Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton are picking up or losing votes in the recount.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission spreadsheet tally done after Tuesday’s counting shows 70% of the ballots have been recounted and Clinton has cut into Trump’s lead by 82 votes. Trump began the recount leading by more than 22,000 votes.
The UpTake’s analysis of the spreadsheet shows all candidates have picked up some votes:
