Putting the results in context

In order to make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, one can translate them into two-party vote shares. The resulting figures are 69.9% for Clinton and 30.1% for Trump.

Comparison to other polls

This value is 0.7 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the Goucher CollegeGoucher College poll. This margin is within the poll's sampling error, which means that the poll is not an outlier.
