The DeSart model is captured in the econometric models component of the PollyVote forecast. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 55.7% for Clinton and 44.3% for Trump in Maine.
Putting the results in context
Single econometric models should be interpreted with caution, because they can include substantial biases. At the very least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
Clinton currently runs at 55.5% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models in Maine. This value is 0.2 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the DeSart model.
