Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, one should not focus too much on the results of an individual poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, we recommend to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, one can translate them into two-party vote shares. This procedure results in figures of 69.2% for Clinton and 30.8% for Trump.

Results in comparison to other polls

Looking at an average of Maryland polls, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 69.0%. This value is 0.2 percentage points lower than her corresponding numbers in the Washington Post/Univ. Of Maryland poll.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote
