The DeSart model published an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will obtain 39.2% of the two-party vote share in Texas, while Trump will end up with 60.9%.
Putting the results in context
Individual econometric models may incorporate large biases, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. At the very least, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results compared to other econometric models
Looking at an average of Texas econometric models, Trump's current two-party vote share is at 57.1%. Compared to his numbers in the DeSart model Trump's econometric model average is 3.8 percentage points lower.
