Putting the results in context

Individual polls should be treated with caution, as they may incorporate substantial errors. At least, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following comparison, we convert Trump's and Clinton's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This yields figures of 46.2% for Clinton and 53.9% for Trump. In the most recent Texas Lyceum poll on September 21 Clinton received 48.7%, while Trump received only 51.3%.
