Putting the results in context
Single polls can contain large biases, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
For the following comparison, we translate the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields figures of 55.1% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump.
Comparison to other polls
Looking at an average of Texas polls, Trump's two-party vote share is currently at 0.0%. An average of recent polls in Texas sees Clinton at 55.1% of the two-party vote. The values are thus identical to the average results of other polls in Texas.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The latest PollyVote expects Trump to gain 56.4% of the two-party vote in Texas. This means that the combined PollyVote is 56.4 points above polling numbers.
