Putting the results in context
Individual polls should be regarded with caution, as they often contain substantial errors. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, the recommended strategy consult combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
For the following comparison, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. The respective figures are 69.2% for Clinton and 30.8% for Trump.
