New Electoral-cycle model: Clinton and Trump virtually tied


The Electoral-cycle model released an updated forecast of the election outcome. The model expects that Clinton will receive 48.6% of the two-party vote share, whereas Trump will end up with 51.4%.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. In general, you should not focus too much on the results of a single econometric model. At the very least, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Results compared to other econometric models

Trump currently runs at 51.1% of the two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models. This value is 0.3 percentage points lower than his corresponding numbers in the Electoral-cycle model.
