Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, one should not focus too much on the results of a single poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, the recommended strategy look at combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. The respective figures are 85.9% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. In the most recent PEC poll on August 16 Clinton received only 82.1%, while Trump received 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.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 44.0% and Trump 56.0% of the two-party vote in Texas. Clinton has 41.9 percentage points more and Trump has 41.9 percentage points less when the results of the poll are compared to the combined PollyVote forecast for Texas.
