Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. In general, one should not focus too much on the results of an individual poll. Instead of relying on results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to rely on combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
For the following analysis, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. This procedure results in values of 55.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
Comparison to other polls
If we look at an average of Texas polls, Trump's two-party vote share is currently at 0.0%. The values are thus identical to the average results of other polls in Texas. The latest PollyVote forecasts Trump to gain 0.0% of the two-party vote in Texas.
