Putting the results in context
Single polls should be treated with caution, as they may incorporate substantial errors. Instead of relying on results from single polls, the recommended strategy rely on combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, one can convert them into two-party vote shares. The respective figures are 27.5% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
