Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. As a result, you should not put too much trust in the results of a single poll. Rather than relying on results from single polls, you should rely on combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, you can translate them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields figures of 11.5% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. For comparison: Only 11.1% was gained by Clinton in the NYT Upshot poll on August 15, for Trump this result was 0.0%.
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 46.0% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Wisconsin.
