ONCE again Miss Maud’s Coffee Bean Poll has trumped the experts and defied the opinion polls to prove it is possibly the most accurate barometer of our nation’s political landscape.
The poll correctly predicted the result of the 2019 Federal Election with 31,748 coffee beans popped into the Miss Maud beakers by customers from across the metropolitan area.
Former Prime Minister John Howard and Hasluck MP Ken Wyatt visited the Swedish restaurant chain’s Midland Gate store last week to see how the votes were brewing in quirky coffee bean poll.
The final tally for Miss Maud’s Coffee Bean Poll comprised almost 32,000 beans and showed a clear appetite for the Liberal Party at 39.6 per cent followed by Labor at 28.4 per cent, Greens and Others both at 10.3 per cent, One Nation at 5.4 per cent, Clive Palmer’s United Australia at 3.7 per cent and Nationals at 2.3 per cent.
Maud Edmiston, the woman behind Swedish restaurant chain, began the Coffee Bean Poll as a bit of fun, back in 1996 when she launched the Morning Tea Party of WA.
This is the 12th time Miss Maud customers have had their say, accurately predicting eight Federal and three State elections.
