Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Hence, a good strategy is to not be too confident the results of an individual poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to look at combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that relies on different methods and data.

For the following comparison, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. The resulting figures are 92.8% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. In the most recent NYT Upshot poll on August 15 Clinton obtained 92.9%, while Trump obtained 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 59.1% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Kentucky.
