Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, you should not rely too much on the results of an individual poll. Instead of trusting the results from single polls, the best practice is to consult combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

For the following comparison, we convert Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure results in figures of 70.0% for Clinton and 30.0% for Trump.

Clinton can currently count on 69.4% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent polls in Maryland. 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.
