The DeSart model provided an updated prediction of the election outcome. It currently predicts a two-party vote share of 38.4% for Clinton and 61.6% for Trump in Louisiana.

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 a single econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, the best practice is to look at combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

The DeSart model compared with PollyVote's forecast

PollyVote currently predicts Trump to gain 57.7% of the two-party vote in Louisiana, which is 3.9 percentage points below the results of the DeSart model.
