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 may incorporate large errors. Instead of relying on results from single polls, we recommend to use combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

For the following comparison, we translate Clinton's and Trump's raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This procedure results in values of 48.3% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump. For comparison: 48.5% was obtained by Clinton in the RCP poll on August 21, for Trump this number was 0.0%.
