The DeSart model released an updated forecast of the election result. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 62.1% for Clinton and 37.9% for Trump in Rhode Island. In comparison, on April 27, Clinton was predicted to end up with only 61.0% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. In general, don't have too much confidence in the results of a single econometric model. Rather, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
Looking at an average of Rhode Island econometric models, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 61.8%. In comparison to her numbers in the DeSart model Clinton's econometric model average is 0.4 percentage points lower.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The econometric model results for Clinton are thus 0.8 percentage points below the combined PollyVote, which at the moment predicts a value of 62.9% in Rhode Island. In comparison, a look at the PollyVote national prediction for Clinton shows that the actual results are 9.6 percentage points higher.
