Hillary Clinton’s margin of defeat is so narrow in three states that recounts should occur in all of them.
In more sobering news about the 2016 Election, it turns out that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are only separated by a combined 80,000 votes across the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
As you will painfully recall, all three of these states went into the Trump column to put him in the White House unless recount efforts in all three states flip the vote in Hillary’s favor.
According to the Cook Report, Hillary is down in Wisconsin by a mere 22,177 votes, and that margin could get smaller as statewide recounts begin. More concerning is that Hillary is only down by 10,704 votes in Michigan, where an effort to secure a recount is ongoing and should happen considering how slim the margin is. And the margin between Hillary and Trump in Pennsylvania stands at 46,435.
In all, that’s 79,316 votes that kept Hillary from winning the presidency.
In short, if 80,000 liberals had shown up to vote instead of staying at home to pitch a fit because Bernie Sanders wasn’t on the ticket, we wouldn’t be talking about Donald Trump being the end of our country right now.
But that’s where we are and it appears our only hope is for recounts in all three states to flip for Hillary.
This is why it is so important to vote. Because refusing to exercise that sacred American right will now cost us dearly. Everything progressives have done to turn this nation into a world superpower is now about to be totally dismantled by a fascist dictator wannabe. And it’s all because progressives threw a temper tantrum over Hillary Clinton being the Democratic nominee.
It’s pathetic really. At least with Hillary Clinton, it would be easier to preserve programs like Social Security and Medicare. With a Democratic Congress, progressives would have been able to pass laws addressing the issues they have been fighting for. But now the entire progressive legacy is about to be torpedoed because many progressives refused to vote for Hillary. Now they’ll have to rebuild the country from scratch assuming that they are ever able to gain power again.
