The Rothschild model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. According to the model, Clinton will collect 76.0% of the two-party vote share in Florida, whereas Trump will end up with 0.0%.
In Florida, the popular vote is often decided by a narrow margin. This is the reason why the state is commonly viewed as a battleground state, which makes it particularly interesting from a forecasting perspective.
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 have too much confidence in the results of an individual econometric model. Rather, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results in comparison to other econometric models
