The Jerome model is part of the econometric models component of the PollyVote. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 46.0% for Clinton and 54.0% for Trump in West Virginia.
Putting the results in context
Individual econometric models can incorporate substantial errors, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather than trusting the results from single econometric models, research in forecasting recommends to use combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
Results in comparison to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in West Virginia sees Trump at 60.4% of the two-party vote. This value is 6.4 percentage points higher than his respective numbers in the Jerome model.
The Jerome model in comparison with PollyVote's forecast
