Until now, the Pennsylvania vote gap was hovering around the 70,000 mark depending on your source. If this tweet is accurate, it just dropped to 46,435.

According to the Cook Report spreadsheet (which hasn’t been updated with this yet...it was posted less than 20 minutes ago), here’s where things stand:

WI: Hillary down 22,177
MI: Hillary down 10,704
PA: Hillary down 46,435
Total: 79,316
80,000 people.

EIGHTY. THOUSAND. PEOPLE.

To think that Johnson the dunce and Tofu Palin are going to cost us fifty years of progress is beyond sickening.

I would rather have gotten blown out than to lose like this.

to their control somehow. The stacked juries are back, and Postmortem 2016 looks more like BernieUnderground than anything else.

just wish they would join the alt-right in the GOP and get it over with, then they can spend all of their time focusing on white populism, no more pesky PoC/women/gays/guns etc to worry about.

The things Trump attacked HRC about would have been just as potent if Bernie hadn't run.

We weren't to blame for the emails and we weren't to blame for the administration refusing to let HRC put a "No TPP" pledge in the platform.

Nor were we to blame for the Clinton-Kaine campaign not having enough canvassers in WI, MI, and PA(as the campaign organizations in those states kept saying to the national HQ, when they begged for more resources and were repeatedly refused).

How can the votes less than 80,000 carry more weight than over 2.5 million? I know...the stupid Electoral College. But I don't think we've EVER had a situation like this...that the "winner" loses by more than 2% and visa versa the "loser" has more than 2.5 million votes.

Absurd...absurd...

I guess they decided to start fixing their counts before they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

I wonder if they would have "found" those extra votes for Hillary if there wasn't a recount/audit pending

I can accurately state that between my wife and myself, 2 votes for Hillary.

Only about 5,918,061 more votes to confirm...

Old rule in politics, stolen votes count twice because you both subtract from one candidate and add to the other.
