Irony: Scott Walker pours cold water on Trump’s desperate plea for recount in Wisconsin

You knew that he wouldn’t just accept a losing total quietly.

So it should come as no surprise that the campaign of Donald Trump is questioning the results of the voting tabulated so far in Wisconsin where late tallies from urban areas have led to an over 20,000 vote lead for Joe Biden with more than 98% of the ballots counted as of midday on Wednesday.

The Trump campaign announced their intention to call for a recount of the Badger State’s votes in a tweet sent by the Trump War Room and quoting campaign manager Bill Stepien.

Stepien didn’t bother specifying what the supposed “irregularities” he alleged to have taken place were exactly, but Trump will force any excuse that he can get to raise doubts about any result that shows him losing to Biden.

The advisability and ultimate efficacy of the Trump campaign’s demand for a recount don’t bode well for the president’s ability to actually change the results of the Wisconsin electorate’s decision.

Former Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker warned Trump on Twitter that Biden’s lead may prove insurmountable given the meager number of votes changed in previous ballot recounts in the state.

Forbes reporter Andrew Solender cited a report from Fairvote.org that confirmed that the average change in ballot tallies in Wisconsin after a recount was less than three hundred votes, seemingly ensuring a Biden win of the state’s electoral votes even if this recount wildly exceeds that average.

Donald Trump is basically within his rights to demand a recount under Wisconsin state law which specifies that if a race is within a single percentage point between two candidates, the trailing candidate can force a recount.

The good news is that his stalling tactics won’t ultimately affect the outcome in all likelihood.
