Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. As a result, one should not be too confident the results of a single poll. At the very least, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following comparison, we translate Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. The corresponding figures are 46.8% for Clinton and 53.2% for Trump.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The current PollyVote foresees Trump to gain 52.8% of the two-party vote in Georgia. Hence, Polly's combined forecast is 0.4 points below his polling numbers. The PollyVote forecast is therefore in line with the poll's error margin.
