Putting the results in context
Individual polls often contain substantial biases, and should be treated with caution. Rather than relying on results from single polls, the recommended strategy use combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. The results of the actual poll mean 0.2 % for Clinton and 0.0 % for Trump in the two-party vote share.
Results compared 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 35.3% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Maryland.
