Votamatic published the results of a new poll. In this poll, interviewees from Nevada were asked for whom they will vote: Republican nominee Donald Trump or Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.

In Nevada, the popular vote is often decided by a narrow margin. This is why the state is commonly referred to as a swing state, which makes it particularly interesting from a forecasting perspective.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single polls, because they often contain large errors. At the very least, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

To make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, we translate them into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 48.5% 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 49.0% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Nevada.
