The DeSart model is included in the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 66.8% for Clinton and 0.0% for Trump in West Virginia. In comparison, on August 4 Trump was still predicted to obtain 66.8% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, since they often incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, research in forecasting recommends to consult combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses different methods and data.

Results vs. other econometric models
