Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they sometimes contain large errors. Rather, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can translate them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields figures of 44.8% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Results vs. other polls

An average of recent polls in Pennsylvania sees Clinton at 44.8% of the two-party vote. The values are thus identical to the average results of other polls in Pennsylvania.

The poll in comparison with PollyVote's forecast

The most recent PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 45.4% of the two-party vote in Pennsylvania. This means that Polly's forecast is 0.6 points above polling numbers.
