On the first day of the Jill Stein spawned vote recount in Wisconsin, the gap between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump narrowed by 1 vote.
The first day’s results suggest that Stein’s efforts, which came with a hefty price of almost $3.5 million, will show a final vote tally very close to the original one.

Daily Caller reports:
Only Menominee County, home to the Menominee Indian Reservation, fully reported its recounted results on the first day. It found 17 extra votes for Stein and 12 for Libertarian Gary Johnson, while removing two votes from Trump and one from Clinton.
When putting all the results together, that means the first day of the recount narrowed the gap between Clinton and Trump by just a single vote.
Trump defeated Clinton in the state of Wisconsin by just over 22,000 votes or about 1% of the total vote.
Stein filed for a Wisconsin recount after suggesting that fraud or technological glitches may have swayed the results but has admitted that there is no concrete evidence of voter fraud.
