This Week in the World Affairs Brief:

WHY A RECOUNT WON’T CHANGE THE RESULTS

The recount battle mounted by Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Democrat Hillary Clinton is a plan with secondary motives. Having missed the deadline to request a recount before the courts in Pennsylvania, there is no way to achieve the 270 electoral votes Clinton needs to turn this election around, even if the results were reversed in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania combined. But the Clinton margin of victory is even slimmer in New Hampshire than Trump’s margins in Wisconsin, so there’s a bit of hypocrisy in only asking for a recount in states where Clinton lost. So, what gives? The recount may be a move to deter the electors of the two contested states from casting their ballots on Dec. 19th when the Electoral College is scheduled to declare the winner.
