The Rothschild model is part of the econometric models component of the PollyVote. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 32.0% for Clinton and 68.0% for Trump in Ohio.
Historically, Ohio has been a battleground state, in which neither the GOP nor the Democrats have had overwhelming support to secure its electoral college votes. This is why forecasts here are of particular importance.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not be too confident the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, the recommended strategy use combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which incorporates different data.
