Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they may incorporate large errors. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following analysis, we translate Clinton's and Trump's raw poll numbers into two-party vote shares. The corresponding figures are 44.8% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Comparison to other polls

Looking at an average of Pennsylvania polls, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 44.8%. 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.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The latest PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 45.4% of the two-party vote in Pennsylvania. Hence, the PollyVote is 0.6 points above polling numbers.
