Putting the results in context


The DeSart model enters the econometric models component of the PollyVote. The model expects that Clinton will obtain 50.4% of the two-party vote share in New Hampshire, while Trump will end up with 49.6%.

New Hampshire is traditionally a swing state, where Republicans and Democrats have often achieved similar levels of voter support. Hence, the election outcome in that state is viewed as critical in determining the overall result of the presidential election.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, since they often incorporate large errors. At least, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton can currently count on 52.2% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models in New Hampshire. This value is 1.8 percentage points higher than her respective numbers in the DeSart model.
