Putting the results in context

Single polls often incorporate large biases, which is why they should be treated with caution. Instead of relying on results from single polls, one should rely on combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

To make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, we translate them into two-party vote shares. The respective figures are 44.9% for Clinton and 55.1% for Trump. On August 7 Clinton obtained 55.1% in the PPP (D)PPP (D) poll and Trump obtained only 0.0%.

Results vs. other polls

Trump can currently count on 51.4% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent polls in Georgia. In comparison to his numbers in the PPP (D)PPP (D) poll Trump's poll average is 3.7 percentage points lower.
