Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. In general, you should not put too much trust in the results of a single poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, the best practice is to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can translate them into two-party vote shares. The resulting figures are 10.2% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. In the most recent NYT Upshot poll on August 15 Clinton obtained only 9.6%, while Trump obtained 0.0%.
Comparison to other polls
In comparison 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 46.7% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Pennsylvania.
