Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, you should not have too much confidence in the results of an individual poll. Instead of relying on results from single polls, forecasting research recommends to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

To make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. The resulting figures are 48.5% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
