Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Hence, a good strategy is to not rely too much on the results of an individual poll. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following comparison, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 1.6% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. On August 15 Clinton obtained only 1.5% in the NYT Upshot poll and Trump obtained 0.0%.

Results vs. 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 35.6% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Massachusetts.
