Jerome model in Mississippi: Trump is in the lead


The Jerome model released an updated prediction of the election outcome. The model forecasts that Clinton will garner 46.2% of the two-party vote share in Mississippi, whereas Trump will end up with 53.8%.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, since they may incorporate large errors. Rather than trusting the results from single econometric models, one should consult combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

Results compared to other econometric models

Looking at an average of Mississippi econometric models, Trump's two-party vote share is currently at 56.2%. This value is 2.4 percentage points higher than his respective numbers in the Jerome model.
