Trump's Margin Of Victory Increases In Wisconsin Recount

Early presidential recount votes in Wisconsin show President-elect Donald Trump with an even larger margin of victory over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Out of the 72 counties in Wisconsin, 23 have officially concluded their recount, WITI reported. The results show Trump picking up 105 votes and Clinton dropping 41 votes.

Trump had initially beat Clinton by 22,000 votes in the state, Breitbart reported.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission issued a statement Dec. 6 explaining that some voting machines in St. Coix had broken seals. The statement included an affidavit from a technician who said they were broken to service modems on the scanners.

Officials added that they are confident the voting machines accurately reported results.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein had requested the recount to rule out any doubt that the integrity of the votes was compromised. Stein reportedly got less than 1 percent of the statewide vote.
