Putting the results in context
As a general rule, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single polls, because they can contain large errors. Instead of relying on results from single polls, the evidence-based approach is to use combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which uses different data.
In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, one can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. The corresponding figures are 45.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
Results vs. other polls
When compared 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 46.7% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Pennsylvania.
