2016 battleground states: Poll averages vs. popular vote (Wisconsin)

Pollsters were right on the money regarding Clinton's performance in Wisconsin.  To their immense discredit, however, they seriously underestimated Trump's potential for a win.  And in just about every state, they seem incapable of gauging support for 3rd-party candidates.

Total votes in Presidential elections:
  • 2,983,417 (2008)
  • 3,068,434 (2012)
  • 2,929,099 (2016, preliminary)
