    And Russia. They moved some more armed forces in a somewhat aggressive military move. They are loving this.

    Will they actually recount? Or is this something that *might* happen?
    No, they're definitely recounting Wisconsin and most likely Michigan and Pennsylvania. Paperwork for Wisconsin has been approved and Stein has pretty much raised enough money for the other two states. It probably won't change the result, but we can dream.

    What does this mean? It can't change who won can it?

    I'm still dreaming the electoral college will reverse the vote. Surely Donald has done enough during the campaign and after it for them to see he is not fit to be president and for them to say stuff history, let's vote for the person who won a very clear majority with most voters!

    Well it can if the results in those states are wrong as those are the states that swung the election, but it's pretty unlikely. There are a few counties in Wisconsin where it is already confirmed that the results were wrong and in Trump's favor. One of the Green Party's stances is that the voting system needs to be overhauled and only a presidential candidate can ask for a recount so that's why Jill Stein is doing this. The evidence coming out that Russia definitely tried to skew the election (the email hacks and fake news) has many worried that they were also able to do it with some results (although there is no evidence of this yet) so Stein feels a recount needs to be done to figure out where there are weak spots in certain computer voting systems, if it's best to do a regular recount/audit for every election, etc. She's right, this should be a normal part of the process.

    I'm dreaming too, I believe it's happened two other times in history where the electors went with who won the popular vote and not the college, this election is actually the perfect example of why they exist, so that if a demagogue gets elected the can swoop in and save the day.

    It's like Trump has a list of all of the people you shouldn't appoint to positions of power and is giving them the jobs. When you drain the swamp only scum is left.

    I wish I could take credit, I stole it from a friend (I've copied and pasted some of her comments in here before as she's so friggin articulate and spot on with this election.)
