Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. As a result, don't put too much trust in the results of a single poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, research in forecasting recommends to rely on combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

For the following analysis, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. The resulting figures are 69.2% for Clinton and 30.8% for Trump.
