If you were to look at any of the most respected polls, they would all show that Hillary Clinton is significantly more popular than Donald Trump (or less unpopular, depending on how you look at it). In past elections, these numbers would suggest that the next presidential election is going to be a slam dunk for Hillary. However, this election has been anything but ordinary, and the traditional methods of polling the public may not be accurate anymore (or they may be rigged in favor of Hillary).

That’s certainly what Ric Militi believes. He’s the creator of the Zip Questions and Answers app, and based on the data derived from that app, he thinks the polls are wildly inaccurate. “Based on the stats we see, he looks strong,” Militi said in an interview with USA today.

So what makes his app a better metric for predicting the results of an election? To figure that out, we first have to see what service his app provides. The Zip app allows its users to pose opinion based questions on a public forum, where fellow users can vote for different possible answers. It’s advertised as a way to “win bets and settle arguments” that don’t have a definite answer. And that process brings out a bit more candor among the app’s users.

According to Militi, “We’re not a poll. We’re a conversation, and 100% anonymous. People feel comfortable answering questions without fear of being bullied or being called a racist. People can express themselves safely, and you get a pure answer.” Militi also believes that his app users represent an adequate cross section of voter demographics.
