Votamatic published the results of a new poll. In this poll, participants from Florida were asked for whom they will vote: Republican nominee Donald Trump or Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.

Historically, Florida has been a swing state, in which neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have had overwhelming support to secure its electoral college votes. This is why predictions in this state are of particular importance.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, don't put too much trust in the results of a single poll. Rather than relying on results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to consult combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, we translate them into two-party vote shares. This procedure results in figures of 48.0% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Comparison to other polls

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 49.4% and Trump % of the two-party vote in Florida.
