Putting the results in context

Single polls should be regarded with caution, as they often include substantial biases. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following comparison, we translate the candidates' raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 57.3% for Clinton and 42.7% for Trump.

Comparison to other polls

Clinton can currently count on 51.5% of the two-party vote in an average of recent polls in Oregon. This value is 5.8 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the FOX 12/KPTVFOX 12/KPTV poll. This difference is outside the poll's sampling error, which means that the poll is an outlier.
