The DeSart model published an updated forecast of the election outcome. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 62.6% for Clinton and 37.4% for Trump in Massachusetts.
Putting the results in context
Single econometric models can include substantial biases, and should be treated with caution. At least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results in comparison to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Massachusetts has Clinton at 62.1% of the two-party vote. This value is 0.5 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the DeSart model.
