Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, one should not have too much faith in the results of single polls, because they can contain large errors. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following analysis, we translate Clinton's and Trump's raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 98.3% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
