Jill Stein is demanding a recount of some of the closes states Trump won. The close ones Hillary won are fine though. When the votes were close, there is a recount anyway, Jill. Trump won. Get over it.
Now, some fun, fast facts about Trump’s victory:
- He won by 10,704 votes.
- He received 2,279,543 votes. Hillary received 2,268,839.
- He is the first Republican since 1988 to win Michigan.
- Trump won with 306 electoral votes. (Hillary received 232.)
In the closest race for president in Michigan’s history, Republican Donald Trump is hanging on to a 10,704 vote win over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The Michigan Secretary of State posted results Wednesday that were submitted by the state’s 83 county clerks on Tuesday after the votes were reviewed and certified by each county.
Before that compiled count, Trump held a 13,107 lead over Clinton. But after each county certified its results, the lead shrunk to 10,704, with the biggest chunk coming from Wayne County, which showed that Clinton had gotten 565 more votes than originally tallied by the county.
