WSB-TV/LandmarkWSB-TV published the results of a new poll. In this poll, interviewees from Georgia were asked for whom they will vote: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
WSB-TV/LandmarkWSB-TV poll results
According to the results, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and businessman Donald Trump can draw on the same level of support, each with 45.0% of the vote.
The poll was conducted from July 31 to July 31 among 787 likely voters. If one accounts for the poll's sampling error of +/-4.0 percentage points, the results reflect a statistical tie.
Putting the results in context
Single polls should be treated with caution, since they often include large errors. Rather than relying on results from single polls, we recommend to use combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that includes different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, we translate them into shares of the two-party vote. The results of the actual poll mean 50.0 % for Clinton and 50.0 % for Trump concerning the two-party vote share.
Comparison to other polls
When compared to the average results of other polls Clinton performed better with 1.4 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 1.4 percentage points.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 48.0% and Trump 52.0% of the two-party vote in Georgia. Clinton has 2.0 percentage points more and Trump has 2.0 percentage points less when the results of the poll are compared to the combined PollyVote forecast for Georgia. The PollyVote forecast is therefore outside the poll's margin of error.
