Trump’s victory margin smaller than total Stein votes in Pa., Mich., Wis.

Critics have blamed Stein’s support for Trump’s win, saying that Green Party backers not voting for Clinton ended up being de facto help for Trump.


Trump won the Electoral College race with 306 electoral votes. Pennsylvania was worth 20 electoral votes, Michigan 16 and Wisconsin 10. If Clinton had won all three, she would have won the election.


Stein has filed for a recount in all three of the states. She herself has acknowledged she doesn’t expect recounts to change the election results but called them a matter of election integrity.


On Wednesday, The Associated Press reported Clinton’s lead over Trump in the popular vote had grown to 2.3 million.


Clinton’s total was 64,874,143, or 48.1 percent of the vote, to Trump’s 62,516,883, or 46.4 percent.



Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson received 4,442,771 votes, or 3.3 percent of the vote, and Stein got 1,420,351 votes, or 1.1 percent.
