The Jerome model released an updated prediction of the election outcome. According to the model, Clinton will collect 45.6% of the two-party vote share in Alabama, whereas Trump will end up with 54.4%. In comparison, on August 14 Trump was predicted to obtain 0.0% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Single econometric models should be treated with caution, since they may contain substantial biases. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, one should consult combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
Comparison to other econometric models
Trump is currently at 59.3% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models in Alabama. Relative to his numbers in the Jerome model Trump's econometric model average is 4.9 percentage points better.
