The DeSart model is part of the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 55.4% for Clinton and 44.6% for Trump in Washington. In comparison, on August 7 Trump was still predicted to win 0.0% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

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

Results in comparison to other econometric models

An average of recent econometric models in Washington sees Clinton at 54.1% of the two-party vote. Compared to her numbers in the DeSart model Clinton's econometric model average is 1.3 percentage points worse.
