Trump

According to the results, 39.0% of participants plan to vote for former New York Senator Hillary Clinton, while 44.0% are going to vote for businessman Donald Trump.

This poll was conducted from August 3 to August 7, among a random sample of 566 likely voters.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they can incorporate large errors. Rather, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following comparison, we translate Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This yields figures of 47.0% for Clinton and 53.0% for Trump. On September 10 Clinton received only 43.4% in the KSN News/SurveyUSA poll and Trump received 56.6%.

The poll in comparison with PollyVote's forecast

The latest PollyVote forecasts Trump to gain 56.7% of the two-party vote in Kansas. Hence, the combined PollyVote is 3.7 points above his polling numbers.
