Jerome model: Trump in Rhode Island trails by a very clear margin


The Jerome model provided an updated prediction of the election outcome. The model forecasts that Clinton will achieve 61.7% of the two-party vote share in Rhode Island, whereas Trump will end up with 38.3%. In comparison, on August 7, Clinton was predicted to win only 38.3% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, as they sometimes contain large errors. Rather, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
