The DeSart model is included in the econometric models component of the PollyVote forecast. It currently predicts a two-party vote share of 40.2% for Clinton and 59.8% for Trump in Montana. In comparison, on April 27, Clinton was predicted to gain only 39.0% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Individual econometric models should be treated with caution, as they often incorporate large biases. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, the recommended strategy rely on combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses different methods and data.
