The DeSart model provided an updated forecast of the election result. The model predicts that Clinton will obtain 58.0% of the two-party vote share in South Carolina, while Trump will win 0.0%. In comparison, on August 4 Trump was still predicted to garner 58.0% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Individual econometric models should be regarded with caution, since they often include substantial errors. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, one should rely on combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that includes different methods and data.
Comparison to other econometric models
In comparison to the average results of other econometric models Clinton performed better with 0.0 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 0.0 percentage points.
