Clinton leads in New Hampshire by 5 points in latest WBUR/MassINC poll


Results of a new poll administered by WBUR/MassINC were published. The poll asked respondents from New Hampshire for whom they will vote: Donald·Trump or Hillary·Clinton.

In New Hampshire, the popular vote is often close. This is why the state is commonly referred to as a swing state, which makes it particularly interesting from a forecasting perspective.

Putting the results in context

Individual polls should be interpreted with caution, because they can include large biases. Rather, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

In order to make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, you can convert them into shares of the two-party vote. This procedure yields figures of 52.9% for Clinton and 47.1% for Trump.

Clinton currently runs at 52.5% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent polls in New Hampshire. This value is 0.4 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the WBUR/MassINC poll. This margin is within the poll's margin of error, which means that the poll is not an outlier.
