The poll was carried out from July 29 to July 31 among 628 likely voters. Taking into account the poll's margin of error of +/-4.0 percentage points, the results reflect a statistical tie.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single polls, because they may contain large errors. Rather than relying on results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to rely on combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

For the following analysis, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in figures of 52.3% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Results compared to other polls

When compared 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.
