DeSart model: Clinton with very clear lead in Massachusetts


The DeSart model released an updated forecast of the election result. The model expects that Clinton will achieve 62.6% of the two-party vote share in Massachusetts, while Trump will end up with 37.4%. In comparison, on April 27 Trump was still predicted to obtain 38.5% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

Individual econometric models should be treated with caution, since they often include large errors. At the very least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton can currently count on 61.5% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models in Massachusetts. This value is 1.1 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the DeSart model.
