Putting the results in context
Individual polls often contain large biases, and should be treated with caution. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, we recommend to use combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.
To make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, we translate them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields figures of 70.0% for Clinton and 30.0% for Trump.

If we look at an average of Maryland polls, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 69.4%. This value is 0.6 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the Wash Post/Univ. Of Maryland*Wash Post/Univ. Of Mar poll.
