Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they may incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, the recommended strategy look at combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that includes different methods and data.

For the following comparison, we translate the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in values of 64.0% for Clinton and 36.0% for Trump.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote forecast

The most recent PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 58.2% of the two-party vote in Illinois. That is, the PollyVote forecast is 5.8 points below her polling numbers.
