Local App Bucks Trend: Trump will win in November

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton? Who's it going to be in November?

A San Diego company believes they have the answer thanks to a new smart phone app called Zip.

The Zip question/answer app was invented in San Diego.

Users can ask any question and thousands of users give their opinion, especially when it comes to Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton.

On CBS News 8 This Morning the app was used to ask viewers - "If the election were held today, who would you vote for?"

Donald Trump came out on top, 67-percent to 33-percent for Clinton.

In fact, Donald Trump has been wining in virtually all the surveys on the Zip app.

The company's CEO believes because the app is anonymous, users are more likely to tell the truth.

Most official polls put Clinton ahead of Trump by five to eight points, according to USC political professor Casey Dominguez.

So why does the Zip app have Trump on top?

Professor Dominguez said using the app to gauge public opinion may attract a large number of responses, but the results may not reflect the demographics of the actual voters.

The Zip company said users answer about 1.5 million questions per day on the app, and the app is available to download for free.
