Trump

The results show that billionaire Donald Trump and former First Lady Hillary Clinton have identical levels of support, each with 44.0% of the vote.

The poll was conducted from November 4 to November 6. A total of 800 likely voters responded. Considering the poll's error margin of +/-3.5 percentage points, the results reflect a statistical tie.

Putting the results in context

Individual polls should be regarded with caution, because they often incorporate substantial errors. At the very least, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

To make the results comparable to benchmark forecasts, you can convert them into two-party vote shares. The results of the actual poll mean 50.0 % for Clinton and 50.0 % for Trump for the two-party vote share.

Results in comparison to other polls

Clinton currently runs at 49.4% of the two-party vote in an average of recent polls in North Carolina. In comparison to the average forecast of other polls Clinton performed 0.7 percentage points better in the poll. This difference is outside the poll's sampling error, which suggests that the poll is an outlier.

The poll in comparison with PollyVote's prediction

The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 50.3% and Trump 49.8% of the two-party vote in North Carolina. Clinton has 0.3 percentage points less when the results of the poll are compared to the combined PollyVote forecast for North Carolina. Again, a look at the poll's margin of error shows that this deviation is significant.

Putting the results in context

Results vs. other polls

An average of recent polls in North Carolina has Clinton at 49.1% of the two-party vote. This value is 2 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the Quinnipiac poll. This margin is within the poll's sampling error, which means that the poll is not an outlier.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The latest PollyVote foresees Clinton to gain 50.3% of the two-party vote in North Carolina. That is, Polly's prediction is 0.8 points below her polling numbers. Again, a look at the poll's margin of error reveals that this deviation is insignificant.

North Carolina: Crosstab model shows Clinton in the lead

The Crosstab model enters the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently forecasts a major vote share of 50.4% for Clinton, and 49.6% for Trump in North Carolina.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, don't rely too much on the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single models, the best practice scientific advice is to look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton is currently at 0.0% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models in North Carolina. This value is 50.4 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the Crosstab model. The current PollyVote expects Clinton to gain 50.4% of the two-party vote in North Carolina.
