Washington Post/Univ. Of Maryland poll results

This poll was conducted from March 30 to April 3.
Putting the results in context
In general, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single polls, because they often incorporate large errors. Rather than trusting the results from single polls, one should rely on combined polls or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates different methods and data.
In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from benchmark methods, you can translate them into shares of the two-party vote. The respective figures are 70.0% for Clinton and 30.0% for Trump. In the latest Washington Post/Univ. Of Maryland poll on April 3 Clinton obtained only 69.2%, while Trump obtained 30.8%.
The poll compared with PollyVote's forecast
The latest PollyVote expects Clinton to gain 65.4% of the two-party vote in Maryland. Hence, the combined PollyVote is 4.6 points below her polling numbers.
