Green Party-backed voters dropped a court case Saturday night that had sought to force a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump, in what Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein had framed as an effort to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated . . .
The state’s top elections official, Secretary of State Pedro Cortes, a Democrat, has said there was no evidence of any sort of cyberattacks or irregularities in the election. Any recount would change few votes, Cortes predicted . . .
As of Friday, Trump’s margin of victory in Pennsylvania was 49,000, or less than one per cent, out of six million votes cast, according to state election officials. Final counts were outstanding in some counties, including heavily populated Allegheny County, but state and county officials did not expect any outstanding uncounted votes to change the outcome of the presidential election in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania’s automatic statewide recount trigger is 0.5 per cent. Stein drew less than one per cent of the votes cast.
I first read about this . . . in the Canadian News. :o
Mr. Trump won PA by less than 1%.
Ms. Stein “drew less than one per cent of the votes cast”.
Perhaps, if the Green Party hadn’t run Ms. Stein as a candidate for President, Hillary Clinton would have received more votes in PA. :hmmm:
