The Rothschild model released an updated prediction of the election result. The model predicts that Clinton and Trump will each win 50% of the two-party vote.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, one should not rely too much on the results of an individual econometric model. At the very least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
In comparison to the average results of other econometric models Clinton performed worse with 59.3 percentage points, while Trump did better with 59.3 percentage points.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
Clinton has 39.9 percentage points less and Trump has 39.9 percentage points less when the results of the econometric model are compared to the combined PollyVote forecast for Alabama.
