She s over 2 million popular votes ahead now, and some experts are suggesting that Hillary Clinton could be ahead in another metric, too.
This week, a slew of computer scientists and election lawyers have called upon the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee to request a recount in three key states that were previously called for President-Elect Donald Trump.
According to the team of researchers, which includes prominent names like voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society J. Alex Halderman, there is persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked, New York Magazine reports.
This is by no means the first time that concerns over hacking have emerged this election cycle.
Before November 8, Trump himself constantly remarked on the rigged system, and in the weeks leading up to Election Day, reports surfaced that the voter registration systems of more than 20 states may have been hacked.
However, to suggest that the results of the election may indeed have been affected by such activity is a novel development.
