If Trump wants a recount in Wisconsin, he’s got to pay 7.9 million dollars for it. If the recount shows he won, the state has to refund the money. Biden leads in Wisconsin by 20,470 votes. Deadline to request a recount is tomorrow, Dec 18.
In 2016, Jill Stein requested a recount in Wisconsin. As a result, Clinton gained 713 votes, Trump gained 844 and so Trump ended up ahead by 131 votes. Whoopie doo!
If the recount doesn’t cost 7.9 million dollars, Wisconsin gives Trump a partial refund.
Nevada has the same deal for Trump. I don’t know the deadlines or the cost of a recount. In 2016, Jill Stein requested a partial recount, and it ended in a net gain of 3 votes for Trump.
Deal or No Deal? If Trump goes for the recounts, the only thing that will come out of it is the count is off, perhaps a couple hundred votes. It will further legitimize the initial count of votes.
Deal or no deal. We shall see.
