Putting the results in context
Individual polls should be regarded with caution, because they can contain substantial errors. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to use combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields figures of 0.7% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

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 42.4% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Illinois.
