Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single polls, because they can incorporate large errors. Rather than relying on results from single polls, we recommend to use combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

To make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, we translate them into two-party vote shares. The corresponding figures are 8.5% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Results in 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 44.5% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Maine.
