MPR’s Steve Mullis has put this graphic together showing Web pages status updates of the U.S. Senate recount in Minnesota on the MPR, Star Tribune, and Pioneer Press Web sites.
MPR’s numbers are based on the Secretary of State’s recount site, which treats the results the same way they’re treated on election night.
The Star Tribune and Pioneer Press are focusing on the gap between Coleman and Franken on election night, and then subtracting or adding to that as differences in each precinct are reported from election night to the recount.
Clear as mud?
