Cruz Wins 5th GOP Debate in Straw Poll Conducted by Blockchain Tech Corp.

Blockchain Tech Corp. conducted a straw poll following the CNN / Salem Radio GOP Debate held at the Venetian in Las Vegas on December 15th, 2015. The poll was conducted at a watch party held at New York’s Metropolitan Republican Club. Ted Cruz had the most support following the debate, followed by Donald Trump.

The voting technology employed utilizes the blockchain — the technology underlying the security of the digital currency Bitcoin. This allows the company to conduct secure, tamper resistant elections by using the blockchain as a high-tech audit trail to ensure voting records are transparently verifiable and all votes are unique.

Speaking on an earlier straw poll conducted by Blockchain Tech Corp., the manager of the Metropolitan Club, Jeff Goolsby, said:

“I think what they bring to the voting process is the future of free and open elections.”

Executives with Blockchain Technologies Corporation say the company will continue to showcase its voting technology throughout the 2016 election cycle.

Participants in the poll were asked: “who do you think won tonight’s debate?” Out of 86 potential voters, the clear winner was Ted Cruz with 33 votes; Donald Trump, the favorite from the previous GOP debate, only received 19 votes this time.

Below are the official results from Blockchain Tech Corp.'s 5th GOP Presidential Debate Straw Poll:

  • Ted Cruz - 33
  • Donald Trump - 19
  • Marco Rubio - 13
  • Chris Christie - 8
  • Rand Paul - 7
  • Carly Fiorina - 4
  • Jeb Bush - 1
  • John Kasich - 1
  • Ben Carson - 0

Blockchain Technologies Corporation is a part of Global Arena Holding Inc (GAHC: OTC US). They are working to bring modern technology and transparency to the election process. The company has filed a non-provisional utility patent titled ‘System and Method For Securely Receiving And Counting Votes In An Election’ – Application #14820530.
