Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not put too much trust in the results of a single poll. Rather than trusting the results from single polls, forecasting research recommends to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, you can convert them into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 6.9% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. On August 15 Clinton received only 6.7% in the NYT Upshot poll and Trump received 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 34.9% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Delaware.
