Washington, D.C.: DeSart & Holbrook model shows Clinton in the lead

The DeSart & Holbrook model provided an updated prediction of the election result. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 93.8% for Clinton, and 6.2% for Trump in Washington, D.C..

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Hence, a good strategy is to not have too much confidence in the results of an individual econometric model. Instead of trusting the results from single models, we recommend to rely on combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that incorporates different methods and data.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote forecast

The latest PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 91.0% of the two-party vote in Washington, D.C.. The results of the DeSart & Holbrook model for Clinton are thus 2.8 percentage points above the combined PollyVote in Washington, D.C..

New Monmouth University poll shows Clinton with 6 points lead

Monmouth University published the results of a new national poll. In this poll, respondents were asked for whom they will vote: Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump.

Monmouth University poll results
50

Clinton

44

Trump

The results show that 50.0% of interviewees indicated that they would give their vote to former New York Senator Hillary Clinton, while 44.0% plan to vote for businessman Donald Trump.

The phone poll was carried out between November 3 and November 6. The sample size was 748 likely voters. Considering the poll's sampling error of +/-3.7 percentage points, the results reflect a statistical tie.

Putting the results in context

Individual polls often contain substantial biases, and should be interpreted with caution. At the very least, one should examine how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

In order to make the results comparable to forecasts from other methods, we translate them into two-party vote shares. This procedure results in values of 53.2% for Clinton and 46.8% for Trump. On October 16 Clinton obtained 56.4% in the Monmouth University poll and Trump obtained only 43.6%.

Comparison to other polls

Looking at an average of polls, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 52.0%. Relative to her numbers in the Monmouth University poll Clinton's poll average is 1.2 percentage points lower. This difference is within the poll's error margin, which suggests that the poll is not an outlier.

The poll in comparison with PollyVote's forecast

The most recent PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 52.6% of the two-party vote. Hence, Polly's prediction is 0.6 points below her polling numbers. Again, a look at the poll's error margin shows that this difference is negligible.

46

Trump

Of those who replied, 48.0% said that they are going to vote for former New York Senator Hillary Clinton, while 46.0% declared that they would give their vote to businessman Donald Trump.

The poll was conducted from October 27 to November 1 among 602 likely voters. The margin of error is +/-4.0 percentage points, which means that the levels of voter support for Trump and Clinton do not differ significantly.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, polls are subject to bias. In general, don't focus too much on the results of a single poll. Rather, one should check how a poll's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

For the following analysis, we translate Clinton's and Trump's raw poll numbers into shares of the two-party vote. This yields figures of 51.1% for Clinton and 48.9% for Trump. For comparison: 53.2% was gained by Clinton in the Quinnipiac poll on October 26, for Trump this result was only 46.8%.

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.

Clinton can currently count on 52.3% of the major two-party vote in an average of recent polls in New Mexico. Compared to her numbers in the Zia PollZia Poll poll Clinton's poll average is 0.6 percentage points higher. This difference is within the poll's error margin, which suggests that the poll is not an outlier.

Crosstab model in Wyoming: Trump is in the lead

The Crosstab model is captured in the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote. According to the model, Clinton will garner 26.3% of the two-party vote share in Wyoming, while Trump will win 73.7%. In comparison, on November 6, Clinton was predicted to collect 26.8% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, don't have too much faith in the results of an individual econometric model. Instead of trusting the results from single models, the best practice scientific advice is to rely on combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that relies on different methods and data.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The most recent PollyVote forecasts Trump to gain 69.8% of the two-party vote in Wyoming. PollyVote currently predicts Trump to gain 3.9 percentage points less compared to the results of the Crosstab model.
