For a lot of people around the world and in the US, the result of this month s presidential election came as a surprise.

But some academics, activists, and computer scientists insist that Trump didn t actually beat Hillary Clinton, and are asking for recounts or audits in three key states where they say the votes were manipulated by foreign hackers.

New York Magazine reports that a group of computer scientists and election lawyers are urging Hilary Clinton s campaign to call for vote recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The group says that the Democrat received 7 percent fewer votes in counties that relied on electronic voting machines compared to counties that used optical scanners and paper ballots, suggesting the possibility of a hack.

While the group acknowledges that there is no conclusive evidence of hacking, it believes the pattern needs to be examined by an independent review.

Meanwhile, The Guardian reports that a loose coalition of experts is preparing to deliver a report to congressional committee chairs and federal authorities next week that focuses on concerns over the results in the three states.
