RCP released the results of a new poll, in which respondents from Ohio were asked for whom they will vote: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

Ohio is traditionally a swing state, where the candidates of both major parties have historically gained similar levels of voter support. Hence, the election outcome here is regarded important in determining who will win the majority of electoral votes.

Putting the results in context

Individual polls should be interpreted with caution, since they may contain large errors. At least, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following analysis, we translate the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This yields figures of 47.2% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Comparison to other polls

If we look at an average of Ohio polls, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 47.2%. The values are thus identical to the average results of other polls in Ohio.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The current PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 47.9% of the two-party vote in Ohio. That is, the combined PollyVote is 0.7 points above polling numbers.
