Putting the results in context
Individual polls often contain substantial errors, and should be treated with caution. Rather, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
For the following comparison, we convert the candidates' raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields values of 47.9% for Clinton and 52.1% for Trump.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The most recent PollyVote forecasts Trump to gain 61.5% of the two-party vote in Alabama. That is, Polly's forecast is 9.4 points above his polling numbers.
