Putting the results in context

Single polls may include large errors, and should be interpreted with caution. Instead of relying on results from single polls, forecasting research recommends to consult combined polls or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses different methods and data.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, we convert them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields values of 70.0% for Clinton and 30.0% for Trump.

The poll in comparison with PollyVote's forecast

The current PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 65.7% of the two-party vote in Maryland. Hence, Polly's forecast is 4.3 points below her polling numbers.
