Recount Anxiety

There’s going to be a recount of votes in the presidential election in Wisconsin, and probably Michigan and Pennsylvania too. I think there are at least seven possible outcomes.

  1. The counts are about the same. There’s no verification of election fraud. Trump stills wins. Life goes on the way it’s going.
  2. The counts are significantly different. There’s no verification of election fraud. Trump stills wins. Some people demand further investigation of other election related issues, like voter suppression and gerrymandering.
  3. The counts are significantly different. There’s convincing evidence of election fraud. Trump stills wins. Some people demand further investigations of the election, including hacking and fake news.
  4. The counts are significantly different. There’s convincing evidence of election fraud. Clinton wins two of the three states but still loses to Trump. Some people demand further investigations of vote totals in other states.
  5. The counts are significantly different. There’s convincing evidence of election fraud. Clinton wins the three states beating Trump. All hell breaks loose.
  6. The counts are significantly different. There’s convincing evidence of election fraud. Clinton wins the three states beating Trump but by that time the Electoral College has already voted him President. All hell breaks loose.
  7. The counts are significantly different. There’s convincing evidence of election fraud. Clinton wins the three states beating Trump and is elected President. All hell breaks loose.

Who knows what the probabilities are of each of these scenarios happening. But if the recounts produce convincing evidence of election fraud, you have to wonder about the legitimacy of all the Congressional races too.
