The DeSart model published an updated forecast of the election result. The model expects that Clinton will achieve 52.5% of the two-party vote share in Michigan, whereas Trump will end up with 47.5%.
Putting the results in context
As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, as they may contain large errors. Instead of relying on results from single econometric models, the best practice is to look at combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
Comparison to other econometric models
If we look at an average of Michigan econometric models, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 53.8%. In comparison to her numbers in the DeSart model Clinton's econometric model average is 1.3 percentage points higher.
The DeSart model in comparison with PollyVote's prediction
The results of the DeSart model for Clinton are thus 1.3 percentage points below the combined PollyVote, which at the moment predicts a value of 53.8% in Michigan. In comparison, a look at the PollyVote national prediction for Clinton shows that the actual results are 0.6 percentage points lower.
