Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single polls, since they sometimes contain large errors. At the very least, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, one can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields figures of 89.7% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. To compare: Only 89.4% was gained by Clinton in the NYT Upshot poll on August 15, for Trump this result was 0.0%.
