Rothschild model in Ohio: Trump with very clear lead


The Rothschild model enters the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote. According to the model, Clinton will receive 32.0% of the two-party vote share in Ohio, while Trump will end up with 68.0%.

Ohio is traditionally a swing state, where the Democrats and the GOP have often achieved similar levels of voter support. This is the reason why the election outcome here is viewed as critical in determining who will win the majority of electoral votes.
