What? Now she wants to hand over her votes to Hillary? Hillary already won the popular vote, does she think the recount would give her the electoral vote too?

The vote in several key states is very close. Many voting machines have a paper trail. In my state, we use paper ballots that are fed into an electric machine. A vote count would compare the paper ballots to the electronic count. If the the machine was programmed properly, the paper and electronic count will match. If someone tampered with the computer program, it would show up as well.

So yes, it could give her the electoral vote as well.

There were anomalies in the numbers reported by electronic voting machines versus paper voting machines. Maybe it's a coincidence, maybe not. Why not check it and see?
