Putting the results in context

Individual polls can incorporate large errors, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. At the very least, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

To make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can convert them into two-party vote shares. This yields figures of 53.1% for Clinton and 46.9% for Trump.

Results vs. other polls

Looking at an average of Arizona polls, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 50.9%. Relative to his numbers in the Arizona Republic poll Clinton's poll average is 2.2 percentage points worse. This deviation is within the poll's sampling error, which means that the poll is not an outlier.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction

The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 48.7% of the two-party vote in Arizona. Hence, Polly's combined forecast is 4.4 points below his polling numbers. Again, a look at the poll's margin of error indicates that this deviation is significant.
