The Trump campaign admitted they are losing Wisconsin by requesting an instant recount despite having more than 20,000 votes behind them.
CNN's Kaitlin Collins reported:
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien says they will request a recount in Wisconsin immediately.

If Trump loses Wisconsin, he will lose the election. There is no mathematical way for him to win the White House without Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Biden can turn Arizona around by winning only Wisconsin and Michigan. Biden doesn't need Pennsylvania if he wins Wisconsin.
A recount will not produce more than 20,000 votes for Donald Trump. It is a desperate move in an election campaign knowing that it has likely lost the state and is reaching for a straw to contest the election.
