Putting the results in context
Single polls should be treated with caution, because they can contain large biases. Instead of relying on results from single polls, we recommend to rely on combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses different methods and data.
In order to make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, we translate them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields values of 67.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. In the latest NYT Upshot poll on August 15 Clinton received 67.4%, while Trump received 0.0%.
Comparison to other polls
In comparison to the average results of other polls Clinton performed better with 0.0 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 0.0 percentage points. The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 53.8% and Trump % of the two-party vote in South Carolina.
