The DeSart model provided an updated prediction of the election outcome. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 25.4% for Clinton and 74.6% for Trump in Wyoming. In comparison, on August 14, Clinton was predicted to end up with 74.6% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Single econometric models should be regarded with caution, because they can include large errors. Rather than trusting the results from single econometric models, research in forecasting recommends to look at combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
Results compared to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Wyoming sees Trump at 71.2% of the two-party vote. This value is 3.4 percentage points lower than his corresponding numbers in the DeSart model.
