After the recount in the Milwaukee and Dane counties, President-elect Joe Biden even got 87 additional votes, according to the local Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In Milwaukee, Biden was awarded 132 more votes, Trump in Dane another 45 votes. The electoral authority published an overview of all deviations in individual polling stations on its website.
Biden won the election in the northern state with around three million votes cast by around 20,000 votes. Trump’s election campaign team paid three million dollars in advance for the partial recount, as the election commission had declared. In 2016, Trump had just won the state.
Biden unreachable ahead
Wisconsin has ten voters in the presidential election. According to the results so far, Biden leads nationwide with 306 to 232 votes. He only needs 270 votes to win. The electoral college, which ultimately determines the president, will vote on December 14th.
A second vote recount is currently ongoing in the southern state of Georgia. If, as expected, the results of the first recount should be confirmed, the 16 electorate from this state also went to Biden as forecast.
Since his election defeat, Trump has been repeating unproven claims that there was election fraud. In an interview with the news channel Fox on Sunday, the US president renewed his allegations that the vote was “a complete fraud,” he said. The main goal of his verbal attacks is the postal vote, which is increasingly used due to the corona crisis. He fails to provide any sound evidence.
