Of those who replied, 34.0% said that they will vote for former First Lady Hillary Clinton, while 37.0% indicated that they would give their vote to businessman Donald Trump.
The poll was carried out from October 5 to October 6 among 500 likely voters.
Putting the results in context
Single polls can include large biases, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. At the very least, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
For the following comparison, we translate Clinton's and Trump's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. The corresponding figures are 47.9% for Clinton and 52.1% for Trump.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The current PollyVote predicts Trump to gain 61.7% of the two-party vote in Alabama. Hence, the PollyVote forecast is 9.6 points above his polling numbers.
