Putting the results in context
Individual polls often incorporate large biases, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. Rather than trusting the results from single polls, the best practice scientific advice is to rely on combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, one can translate them into two-party vote shares. The results of the actual poll mean 0.2 % for Clinton and 0.0 % for Trump concerning the two-party vote share.
Results in comparison to other polls
In comparison to the average results of other polls Clinton performed worse with 0.0 percentage points, while Trump did better with 0.0 percentage points. The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 40.0% and Trump % of the two-party vote in California.
