- The presidential recount vote underway in Wisconsin is costing millions of dollars, diverting county workers from their normal end-of-year duties and raising questions about the integrity of the vote.
It isn't, however, expected to overturn Donald Trump's victory in the state.
Recounts rarely result in victories being reversed. FairVote, a nonpartisan group that tracks recounts, shows three of 27 statewide recounts in the U.S. between 2000 and 2015 resulted in a change in the outcome. The most recent was Democrat Al Franken's U.S. Senate win in Minnesota in 2008.
A FairVote analysis found that statewide recounts resulted in an average margin swing of just 282 votes. Trump won Wisconsin by more than 22,000 votes.
