On Tuesday, Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein appeared on MSNBC to discuss the reasoning behind her calling for a recount in Wisconsin.
MSNBC’s Craig Melvin asked Stein what the outcome would have been if she had not run for President. Melvin pointed to Stein’s 31,000 votes in the Badger State and Trump’s narrow victory of 22,000 votes, seeming to imply that Stein had cost Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton the election.
“What the numbers show is that if I weren’t running, or if I had dropped out, most of green voters would not have voted, and of the remainder, a substantial portion, more than one-third, would have voted for Donald Trump,” Stein told Melvin. “Unfortunately, the numbers are very clear that absent my campaign, the results would have been absolutely no different. It would not have changed the outcome in any state. So, that’s very clear. We are not the spoilers.”
