Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. As a result, one should not put too much trust in the results of an individual poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, we recommend to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which relies on different data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, one can translate them into two-party vote shares. The respective figures are 51.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
Comparison to other polls
When compared 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 53.7% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Mississippi.
