Yes, Trump will only benefit from a recount. The recounts are obviously an attempt to take those states out of the count. Don't the states have just 6 days left to certify their votes? Not much time.
I don't trust Stein or the Democrats, but to be honest I trust the Republicans even less. Everyone seems to think that Trump would be elected by congress, but ALL of the Democrats would be against him, plus all of the Republicans who fought against him during the campaign. I expect that, right now, the Dems and Reps are meeting in back rooms and talking about Romney, Kasich and Sanders as alternatives to Trump.
