You may have been too busy reading actual news to notice that the Chia Poll accurately predicted the outcome of the presidential election.
For the second time in a row, the Chia Poll has been able to predict the winner. This year, Chia Trump’s share of sales were 77 percent compared to Chia Clinton’s 23 percent, according to Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia.
It’s not the first time that non-traditional polling has gotten people to speak with their wallets instead of their voices. 7-Eleven launched the Presidential Coffee Cup Poll, where customers could show their patriotism with whichever color cup they decided to fill up.
In 2012, a donut shop in Denver predicted Mitt Romney would win the White House, but instead he just sold more “Mitt-Yum-ney’s” over “Dough-Bama’s.”
So what happens with Chia Trump now? The entire Freedom of Choice Collection — including fan favorites like Chia Clinton, Chia Obama, and Chia Bernie Sanders, along with the winner Chia Trump — are sold at Kmart, Target, Amazon and chia.com.
“This makes it the second time that the Chia Poll correctly predicted the winner of the Presidential Election,” the Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia release says. “In the first ever Presidential Chia Poll in 2012, the percentages of the sales of Chia Obama vs. Chia Romney almost exactly matched the results of the Electoral College percentages in that election.”
Can Chia predict Trump’s money plans, too?
We know that there is a lot more that unites us than divides us, but when it comes to financial fitness, Clinton and Trump supporters don’t necessarily believe the same thing.
While neither candidate really gave their supporters a lot of faith in the financial future, Trump supporters were less likely to believe that employee wages would go up and the majority of them don’t believe the wage gap will decrease.
So how likely is Trump to follow through on the feelings of his constituents? It depends. While Election Night was slowly coming to a close and Trump’s win was widening, the stock market futures took a nose dive. They rebounded, but how will they look on Inauguration Day?
We aren’t sure what President-elect Donald Trump will do with our money because he hasn’t been terribly specific. But here’s some of what he has said he’s going to do:
- Lower taxes, with bigger cuts the more money you make
- Repeal Obamacare
- Alternative minimum tax will be repealed
- Provide 6 weeks of paid leave to new mothers only
- Promises 25 million new jobs over the next decade
- More oil pipelines and coal export facilities
- Standard tax deduction will be increased and personal exemptions will be eliminated
Among other things listed here.
But even those that have been following Trump since his presidential bid are unsure of what he will actually accomplish during his time in office. As Republicans now control the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act is likely, as Republican leaders have long promised. Other measures may come in time or not at all, depending on how swiftly Congress chooses to act on President Trump’s wishes.
