Wisconsin: Clinton and Trump virtually tied in latest DeSart model


The DeSart model released an updated prediction of the election result. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 51.2% for Clinton and 48.9% for Trump in Wisconsin.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, since they sometimes incorporate large errors. Rather, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton is currently at 53.2% of the two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models in Wisconsin. This value is 2.0 percentage points higher than her corresponding numbers in the DeSart model.
