Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, you should not be overly confident the results of a single poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, you should rely on combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, one can translate them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in values of 13.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. In the latest NYT Upshot poll on August 15 Clinton obtained 13.3%, while Trump obtained 0.0%.
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 46.1% and Trump % of the two-party vote in New Mexico.
