Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not be overly confident the results of an individual poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, the best practice is to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.
For the following comparison, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in figures of 3.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
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 42.5% and Trump % of the two-party vote in New Jersey.
