Rothschild model: Clinton tied with Trump in Virginia


The Rothschild model released an updated forecast of the election outcome. According to this model, Clinton and Trump will each receive 50% of the two-party vote.

Virginia is traditionally a battleground state, where the candidates of both major parties have historically gained similar voter support. This is the reason why the election outcome in that state is viewed as important in determining the overall result of the presidential election.
