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, as they can contain large errors. Rather, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, we translate them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields values of 67.4% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
Results compared to other polls
In comparison to the average results of other polls Clinton performed better with 0.0 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 0.0 percentage points. The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 53.8% and Trump % of the two-party vote in South Carolina.
