The DeSart model is captured in the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. According to this model, Clinton will collect 53.0% of the two-party vote share in New Mexico, while Trump will win 47.0%. In comparison, on April 27, Clinton was predicted to collect only 51.9% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. As a result, don't rely too much on the results of an individual econometric model. Rather, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results in comparison to other econometric models
