Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. As a result, don't be overly confident the results of a single poll. At the very least, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in figures of 44.7% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Results vs. other polls

Clinton is currently at 44.9% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent polls in Pennsylvania. Relative to numbers in the Quinnipiac poll Clinton's poll average is 0.2 percentage points higher. This margin is within the poll's margin of error, which means that the poll is not an outlier.
