Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they can incorporate large errors. At least, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, we translate them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in figures of 64.0% for Clinton and 36.0% for Trump.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote forecast

The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 58.3% of the two-party vote in Illinois. Hence, the combined PollyVote is 5.7 points below her polling numbers.
