Alaska Dispatch/Ivan Moore published the results of a new poll. In this poll, interviewees from Alaska were asked for whom they will vote: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
Alaska Dispatch/Ivan Moore poll results
Of those who responded, 44.0% said that they intend to vote for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while 49.0% indicated that they would give their vote to billionaire Donald Trump.
This poll was conducted from January 5 to January 12, among a random sample of 651 registered voters.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, polls are subject to bias. As a result, you should not rely too much on the results of an individual poll. Rather than relying on results from single polls, one should use combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses different methods and data.
For the following comparison, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. The resulting figures are 47.3% for Clinton and 52.7% for Trump.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The most recent PollyVote foresees Trump to gain 58.3% of the two-party vote in Alaska. Hence, Polly's combined forecast is 5.6 points above his polling numbers.
