Before that compiled count, Trump held a 13,107 lead over Clinton.

Writing in The Hill, historian and educator Ross Rosenfeld said the apparent discrepancy was "a definite argument against the Electoral College", which handed Trump his victory even though Clinton garnered at least 2 million more votes nationwide.

Let's also totally eliminate NY votes - Trump now has about 3.6 million votes more than Clinton nationwide.

Stein and others want an audit and recount of Election Day voting results after reports that voting security experts alerted Clinton's campaign to the possibility of hacks in key counties. And no hard evidence of hacking has been brought forward. Libertarian Gary Johnson received 3.59 percent of the vote and Green Party hopeful Jill Stein 1.07 percent. "But after each county certified its results, the lead shrunk to 10,704, with the biggest chunk coming from Wayne County, which showed that Clinton had gotten 565 more votes than originally tallied by the county".

Stein, who does not stand to win anything if the results are changed, said her effort is "not meant to help Clinton".

Trump was repeatedly criticized before the election for warning that the outcome could be "rigged" and refusing to say if he would accept the results if Clinton won. It takes 270 votes in the Electoral College to win the presidency.
