Putting the results in context
Single polls may include large biases, and should be interpreted with caution. Instead of relying on results from single polls, forecasting research recommends to look at combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, we convert them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields values of 98.7% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. In the most recent NYT Upshot poll on August 15 Clinton obtained 98.8%, while Trump obtained 0.0%.
Results in comparison to other polls
In comparison 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 60.2% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Alabama.
