Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not have too much confidence in the results of a single poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, one should consult combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote 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 results in figures of 5.7% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. To compare: Only 4.3% was gained by Clinton in the NYT Upshot poll on August 15, for Trump this number was 0.0%.
Results in 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 62.5% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Oklahoma.
