Supporters Call For Hillary Clinton To DEMAND An Audit After Receiving 2 Million More Votes Than Trump

Hillary Clinton is currently leading Donald Trump by more than two million votes. This has led some to question whether Trump’s victory was legitimate and has sparked the birth of the “audit the vote” movement.

Specifically, they are demanding that the Department of Justice check the voting machines and vote totals in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. If it was proven that Clinton did win those three states, then it would flip the Electoral College in her favor.

The movement does have some high-profile support. Avengers director Joss Whedon has been tweeting in support of the movement over the past day.

‘The crafty move was forcing the Dems to debunk voter fraud, so when the Trump/Putin cabal ACTUALLY COMMITTED it, we’d sound hypocritical’

‘Demand an audit. Make the call.’

‘1/2 Against ballot audit: hard to pull off, hard to trace. FOR: entirely plausible, given Trump’s ties, character, & last 30 yrs of GOP BS.’

‘2/2 FOR: we need FACTS, before they’re a lost language FOR: calling our reps is a skill we NEED 2 develop. Activism creates activists. CALL.’

In addition to celebrities such as Whedon, a group of computer scientists have alleged that the election results might have been manipulated. According to the report in New York magazine, Clinton might have been denied 30,000 votes in Wisconsin. She lost the state by about 27,000.

‘The academics presented findings showing that in Wisconsin, Clinton received 7 percent fewer votes in counties that relied on electronic-voting machines compared with counties that used optical scanners and paper ballots. Based on this statistical analysis, Clinton may have been denied as many as 30,000 votes; she lost Wisconsin by 27,000.’

Despite the enthusiasm of some of the movement’s supporters, it’s unlikely that any such audit would take place. Trump’s transition is well underway, and Clinton conceded the election on the morning of Nov. 9.

There is one very important group that is not contesting the results of the election: The Democratic Party. No official within the Democratic Party has backed the call for an audit, and Clinton appears have stepped away from politics. Without the support of the party, it is unlikely that this movement will get off the ground.
