Jerome model: Clinton in Idaho trails by a very clear margin


The Jerome model published an updated forecast of the election result. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 32.1% for Clinton and 67.9% for Trump in Idaho.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, one should not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, since they often incorporate large errors. At least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Results in comparison to other econometric models

Trump currently runs at 68.8% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models in Idaho. Relative to his numbers in the Jerome model Trump's econometric model average is 0.9 percentage points better.
