The DeSart model released an updated prediction of the election outcome. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 91.9% for Clinton and 8.1% for Trump.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. In general, a good strategy is to not put too much trust in the results of a single econometric model. Rather, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of econometric models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 89.2%. Relative to her numbers in the DeSart model Clinton's econometric model average is 2.8 percentage points lower.
