Vermont: Jerome model shows Clinton in the lead


The Jerome model provided an updated forecast of the election result. The model forecasts that Clinton will collect 54.2% of the two-party vote share in Vermont, whereas Trump will win 45.8%. In comparison, on April 27, Clinton was predicted to gain only 53.1% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

Individual econometric models can include substantial biases, and should be treated with caution. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, the best practice scientific advice is to use combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.

Comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of Vermont econometric models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 60.4%. This value is 6.2 percentage points higher than her corresponding numbers in the Jerome model.
