The Jerome model released an updated forecast of the election outcome. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 61.7% for Clinton and 38.3% for Trump in Rhode Island.
Putting the results in context
Individual econometric models should be treated with caution, since they may incorporate substantial errors. At the very least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Rhode Island has Clinton at 61.9% of the two-party vote. Relative to her numbers in the Jerome model Clinton's econometric model average is 0.2 percentage points better.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
PollyVote currently predicts Clinton to gain 63.0% of the two-party vote in Rhode Island, which is 1.3 percentage points above the results of the Jerome model. In comparison, a look at the PollyVote national prediction for Clinton shows that the actual results are 8.6 percentage points higher.
