Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, one should not be overly confident the results of a single poll. Instead of relying on results from single polls, the best practice is to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which uses different data.

For the following comparison, we convert Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 45.0% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. To compare: 45.1% was obtained by Clinton in the Votamatic poll on August 16, for Trump this number was 0.0%.

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.
