Jerome model: Clinton in Texas trails by a small margin
The Jerome model provided an updated prediction of the election outcome. The model's forecast is that Clinton will receive 46.8% of the two-party vote share in Texas, whereas Trump will end up with 53.2%.
Putting the results in context
Single econometric models should be treated with caution, since they can contain substantial errors. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, the best practice scientific advice is to consult combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
Results compared to other econometric models
Trump currently achieves 57.0% of the two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models in Texas. In comparison to his numbers in the Jerome model Trump's econometric model average is 3.8 percentage points higher.
