Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, don't rely too much on the results of an individual poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, the evidence-based approach is to rely on combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
For the following analysis, we convert Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. The respective figures are 89.4% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. For comparison: Only 89.1% was obtained by Clinton in the NYT Upshot poll on August 15, for Trump this result was 0.0%.
Results in comparison to other polls
When compared to the average results of other polls Clinton performed better with 0.0 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 0.0 percentage points. The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 57.1% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Arkansas.
