Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Hence, a good strategy is to not focus too much on the results of a single poll. At the very least, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

To make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, one can convert them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields values of 60.2% for Clinton and 39.8% for Trump.
