Putting the results in context
As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single polls, because they often contain large errors. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, one can translate them into shares of the two-party vote. The resulting figures are 1.3% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
