Putting the results in context
As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they often contain large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to consult combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
For the following analysis, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. The resulting figures are 35.8% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
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 40.0% and Trump % of the two-party vote in California.
