Nevada: Clinton and Trump virtually tied in new DeSart model


The DeSart model is included in the econometric models component of the PollyVote. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 51.0% for Clinton and 49.0% for Trump in Nevada.

Nevada is traditionally a battleground state, where Democrats and Republicans have often gained similar levels of voter support. Therefore, the election outcome here is viewed as important in determining who will win the majority of electoral votes.

Putting the results in context

Single econometric models should be interpreted with caution, since they can contain large errors. At least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
