Oregon: DeSart model shows Clinton in the lead


The DeSart model enters the the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 54.0% for Clinton and 46.0% for Trump in Oregon. In comparison, on April 27 Trump was still predicted to garner 47.1% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, as they can incorporate large errors. At least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton is currently at 54.2% of the two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models in Oregon. This value is 0.2 percentage points higher than her corresponding numbers in the DeSart model.
