Putting the results in context

In general, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single polls, as they may contain large errors. Instead of relying on results from single polls, the best practice is to look at combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, one can convert them into two-party vote shares. The corresponding figures are 53.5% for Clinton and 46.5% for Trump.

Comparison to other polls

If we look at an average of New Jersey polls, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 56.3%. This value is 2.8 percentage points higher than her respective numbers in the Richard Stockton CollegeRichard Stockton College poll. This deviation is within the poll's sampling error, which means that the poll is not an outlier.
