The DeSart model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. The model forecasts that Clinton will obtain 42.5% of the two-party vote share in Missouri, while Trump will end up with 57.5%.
Putting the results in context
Single econometric models may incorporate large biases, and should be interpreted with caution. At the very least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Missouri has Trump at 55.1% of the two-party vote. In comparison to his numbers in the DeSart model Trump's econometric model average is 2.5 percentage points worse.
The DeSart model in comparison with PollyVote's forecast
