Like everything else the Democrats do, this recount effort has meanings which are not being presented to the public.
The American Thinker reports:
The Democrats’ real strategy in launching recounts
The recount in Wisconsin, and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of the states. No recount ever changes thousands of votes. I do not think that is the purpose.
The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing the official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters. If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232. No one hits 270.
Then this goes to Congress, where the House voting 1 vote per state elects Trump, and Senate selects Pence. This would be first time Pthis happened since 1824, but in that case, John Quincy Adams won in the House, though he had fewer electoral college votes than Andrew Jackson.
Watch a Trump Aid mock election challenge:
The left is trying to make Trump seem illegitimate. That he did not win the popular vote, that he did not win the Electoral College (did not reach 270), and was elected by being inserted into the presidency by members of his own party in Congress.
Not that it would matter, but it would keep the fire lit in their supporters to continue their protests and build momentum toward 2020 with revenge on their minds.
