Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. In general, a good strategy is to not focus too much on the results of an individual poll. Rather than 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 convert them into two-party vote shares. The corresponding figures are 83.4% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. In the most recent NYT Upshot poll on August 15 Clinton received 83.6%, while Trump received 0.0%.
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 Montana.
