PPP (D)PPP (D) poll results
The poll was carried out between May 27 and May 30. The sample size was 724 registered voters. If one takes into account the poll's sampling error of +/-3.6 percentage points, the results reflect a statistical tie.
Putting the results in context
As a general rule, however, one should not have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they may incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to rely on combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
For the following comparison, we translate Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields values of 55.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
Comparison to other polls
In comparison to the average results of other polls Clinton performed better with 51.4 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 51.4 percentage points. The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 52.6% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Georgia.
