Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, don't put too much trust in the results of a single poll. 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, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. This yields figures of 72.2% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Comparison 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 53.7% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Mississippi.
