Trump

Of those who replied, 62.0% said that they intend to vote for former First Lady Hillary Clinton, while 26.0% revealed that they would give their vote to businessman Donald Trump.

The poll was carried out from April 1 to April 10 among 497 registered voters. Given the poll's margin of error of +/-4.0 percentage points, the gap in voter support is statistically significant.

Putting the results in context

Individual polls often contain large errors, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather than relying on results from single polls, the recommended strategy use combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which incorporates different data.

For the following analysis, we translate Clinton's and Trump's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in values of 70.5% for Clinton and 29.6% for Trump.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction

The latest PollyVote expects Clinton to gain 63.8% of the two-party vote in Massachusetts. This means that Polly's forecast is 6.7 points below her polling numbers. The PollyVote forecast is therefore outside the poll's margin of error.
