Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. As a result, one should not have too much faith in the results of a single poll. Rather than trusting the results from single polls, we recommend to consult combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

In order to make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, we convert them into two-party vote shares. This procedure yields values of 38.0% for Clinton and 62.0% for Trump.

The poll compared with PollyVote's forecast

The current PollyVote anticipates Trump to gain 57.3% of the two-party vote in Kansas. That is, Polly's combined forecast is 4.7 points below his polling numbers.
