The Pollyvote team has completed its third survey of elections experts to forecast the 2016 presidential election. In the late February survey, conducted between February 26 and 29, fifteen experts responded. The forecasts for the Democratic popular two-party vote ranged from a minimum of 48.5% to a maximum of 54.5%. The mean forecast was 52.0%.
This is the exact same result as in the previous survey conducted a month ago and also perfectly matches the latest combined PollyVote forecast.
