Putting the results in context
Individual polls should be treated with caution, since they can include large biases. Rather than trusting the results from single polls, the recommended strategy consult combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
For the following analysis, we translate Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 8.8% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. For comparison: Only 8.5% was gained by Clinton in the NYT Upshot poll on August 15, for Trump this number was 0.0%.

When compared 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 44.5% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Maine.
