538 (polls-plus) model shows Clinton in the lead
The 538 (polls-plus) model published an updated forecast of the election result. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 52.4% for Clinton and 47.6% for Trump. In comparison, on August 14, Clinton was predicted to win only 52.2% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Individual econometric models should be interpreted with caution, since they may incorporate substantial errors. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, you should look at combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
Comparison to other econometric models
In comparison to the average results of other econometric models Clinton performed better with 3.6 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 3.6 percentage points.
