Jerome model: Trump with small lead in Missouri
The Jerome model is part of the econometric models component of the PollyVote forecast. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 47.4% for Clinton and 52.6% for Trump in Missouri.
Putting the results in context
In general, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, since they can contain large errors. Rather, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Missouri has Trump at 55.0% of the two-party vote. Relative to his numbers in the Jerome model Trump's econometric model average is 2.4 percentage points higher.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
The results of the Jerome model for Trump are thus 2.0 percentage points below the combined PollyVote, which at the moment predicts a value of 54.6% in Missouri. In comparison, a look at the PollyVote national prediction for Trump indicates that the actual results are 5.7 percentage points higher.
