Putting the results in context

Single polls may contain large errors, which is why they should be treated with caution. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can translate them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields figures of 10.2% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. For comparison: Only 9.9% was gained by Clinton in the NYT Upshot poll on August 15, for Trump this number was 0.0%.

Results vs. 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 45.5% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Connecticut.
