Putting the results in context

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

To make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, one can translate them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields figures of 31.9% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. On August 16 Clinton received only 31.1% in the PEC poll and Trump received 0.0%.
