Putting the results in context

Individual polls can incorporate substantial biases, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. This yields figures of 44.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.

Looking at an average of Pennsylvania polls, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 44.9%. Relative to numbers in the Susquehanna poll Clinton's poll average is 0.8 percentage points better. This deviation is within the poll's margin of error, which suggests that the poll is not an outlier.
