DeSart model in Kansas: Trump is in the lead


The DeSart model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. The model's forecast is that Clinton will collect 36.0% of the two-party vote share in Kansas, while Trump will win 64.0%. In comparison, on August 14, Clinton was predicted to gain 64.0% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. As a result, don't focus too much on the results of a single econometric model. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, the best practice scientific advice is to rely on combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes different methods and data.

Results vs. other econometric models

An average of recent econometric models in Kansas has Trump at 60.1% of the two-party vote. This value is 3.9 percentage points lower than his respective numbers in the DeSart model.
