The DeSart model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. According to this model, Clinton will obtain 42.7% of the two-party vote share in Arizona, whereas Trump will end up with 57.3%. In comparison, on August 7 Trump was predicted to win 0.0% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, as they can contain large errors. At least, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Results vs. other econometric models

An average of recent econometric models in Arizona has Trump at 57.2% of the two-party vote. In comparison to his numbers in the DeSart model Trump's econometric model average is 0.1 percentage points lower.
