Moore Info. (R) poll results
Of those who replied, 34.0% said that they intend to vote for former First Lady Hillary Clinton, while 37.0% declared that they would give their vote to billionaire Donald Trump.
The poll was carried out from October 5 to October 6 among 500 likely voters.
Putting the results in context
Individual polls may incorporate large biases, and should be treated 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, we convert them into two-party vote shares. This procedure results in figures of 47.9% for Clinton and 52.1% for Trump.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The latest PollyVote predicts Trump to gain 59.3% of the two-party vote in Alabama. This means that Polly's combined forecast is 7.2 points above his polling numbers.
